Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority

Since the spring of 2018, Lynker has been supporting the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) with restoration planning for coastal marsh restoration in the Barataria Basin. Tasks include coordination between CPRA and the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (established as part of the Deepwater Horizon settlement) and preparing restoration planning documentation to comply with National Environmental Policy Act and Oil Pollution Act regulations. Senior Scientist Dr. Cameron Wobus also supported CPRA in technical analyses to support restoration planning and permitting for the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion project, which will reconnect the Mississippi River to the Barataria Basin to provide a sustainable source of sediment to replenish marsh habitats.
