-- July 28, 2021

Due to anticipated widespread damages and risks to public safety and well-being that could potentially occur from the anticipated landfall of Hurricane Ida on the Louisiana Gulf coast, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District (CEMVN) has implemented special emergency permitting procedures on 27 August 2021, pursuant to 33 CFR 325.2(e)(4), to expedite the processing of permit applications for storm-related response and recovery work
The West Shore Lake Pontchartrain project is located in southeast Louisiana on the east-bank of the Mississippi River in St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, and St. James parishes in southeast Louisiana. The West Shore Lake Pontchartrain Chief’s report was signed in June 2015 and the project was fully funded for design and construction in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. 100-year storm surge risk reduction will be achieved by a variety of structural and non-structural features including construction of over 18 miles of levees and floodwalls and two new 2,000 cfs pump stations. While these features will reduce risk from storm surge associated with tropical events, they do not specifically reduce risk of flooding from significant rainfall.
