From CPRA: This project originated as the Bayou Terrebonne Ridge Restoration project in Louisiana Comprehensive Master Plan for a Sustainable Coast.

Similar to the other projects in the plan, its design is driven by the recognition that isolated project investments often provide little benefit beyond their immediate footprint, but the scale of Louisiana’s coastal challenges demands more. As the first of four integrated investments in the Terrebonne Basin, the project is designed to combat land loss and restore habitat in an area damaged by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

The engineering and design of the project, which includes ridge and marsh creation components, have been funded through the Deepwater Horizon oil spill Natural Resource Damage Assessment process. Learn more at

The project team desires local feedback to finalize the design of the project. If you live, work, or spend time in the project area, please contribute by taking these actions between June 24 and July 15, 2020.

More information on the project including a fact sheet and presentation can be found here on the CPRA website.
