Final webinar on the Mid-Barataria project

The final community conversation webinar on the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion project will take place on Tuesday, May 25 at 6:00 p.m.

The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers recently released its Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and the LA TIG released its Draft Restoration Plan on the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion. The release of these two documents represents a critical milestone in the permitting process for the project.

CPRA, the Environmental Law Institute (ELI), the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (LA TIG), and Restore the Mississippi River Delta have partnered to host a virtual webinars on the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion as an informal opportunity to learn more about the project and how to provide formal public comments to USACE.

The Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion is one of the largest and most innovative coastal restoration efforts ever undertaken, and one of the largest environmental infrastructure projects in the history of the United States.

Earlier this month, LA TIG released a Draft Restoration Plan and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS), triggering a public comment period on both documents that lasts until June 3, 2021.
