|To combat Louisiana’s significant land loss, the state of Louisiana created a Coastal Master Plan for restoration and flood protection. Our Master Plan includes various restoration projects across the Louisiana coast-- sediment diversions, hydrologic restoration, barrier island restoration, marsh creation, ridge restoration, bank stabilization, shoreline protection, and oyster reef creation projects.
In our Critical Projects web feature, CRCL highlights four large scale restoration projects from the Master Plan that are critical to slowing this land loss: the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion, the Mid-Breton Sediment Diversion, the Barataria Large Scale Marsh Creation Project, and the Calcasieu River Salinity Control Measures Project.
The restoration projects and many others will work together to help stem natural and human induced land loss. Visit our website to learn more about these critical projects and the areas they are helping to restore: http://crcl.org/critical-projects/critical-projects-overview.html.
