WSLP Project Information
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.
