Meetings to Discuss South Central Coast Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District, is hosting two public meetings to gather input on the feasibility study for hurricane protection and storm damage reduction for the South Central Coast of Louisiana.

The study area includes Iberia, St. Martin, and St. Mary parishes and will look at the feasibility of providing hurricane protection and storm damage reduction and related features.

The study area is included in the State Master Plan and also consists of several existing coastal restoration projects that could work in conjunction with expected findings.

The study agreement was signed with the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority and the Corps of Engineers in October 2018. These public meetings are part of the project initiation. The next opportunity for public input will be in December 2019 with the final report being completed in 2021.

The South Central Coast Study was one of five studies included for the New Orleans District in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018.

The meetings will take place:
