Dear St. Bernard Residents,

Geotechnical Borings Public Notice

As the design for the Louisiana International Terminal moves forward, you will begin to see more activity on the site within the coming months. A few weeks ago, we sent you an email regarding the necessary topographic surveys occurring on the project site. To view that email, click here.

This week, you will begin to see a Public Notice in local publications as Port NOLA requests authorization from the U.S. Army Corps to conduct a geotechnical borings to help study the project site's underground soil conditions.

The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will be accepting public comments on the project May 9 until June 8, 2022. To further review or provide comments, additional information and plans related to the proposal may be obtained at the following website (see Ref#: MVN-2021-00270-2-EG).


If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Angelle Greer with the USACE, Regulatory Branch at (504) 862-2279 or

Specifically, through the geotechnical borings we will be gathering information on underground soil conditions of the proposed project site. The borings and other tests will begin once appropriate permits are issued for these investigations, most likely in June 2022.

We will be sending a notice out detailing the geotechnical borings activity as we get closer to the assessments. Please note, these assessments are to better understand the existing conditions of the site, and do not signal construction.

We recognize the importance of sharing information with the St. Bernard Parish community. Although nearly 200 people joined us in Chalmette, Violet, and Lower St. Bernard Parish, we understand that not everyone could attend the in-person open houses we hosted on March 9, 15, and 17. That’s why we’ve created an online version of the events with the same information we presented in person. If you did attend the events in March, please pass the link along to someone you know who could not.

We are committed to working with you to design a project that brings opportunity to St. Bernard families and protects the local quality of life. To maintain transparency, we will continue to go above and beyond the federal public outreach requirements.
