New Orleans --
The Notice of Intent for the St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana Feasibility Study was published on the Federal Register June 19, 2020 and the Corps of Engineers is seeking public comment for the study.
The study is funded by the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 and was initiated in January 2020 following execution of the Feasibility Cost Share agreement with the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority Board.

The scoping, public involvement, and interagency coordination processes will help identify and define the range of potential significant issues that will be considered, such as: social, economic, and environmental impacts associated with the proposed project.
The Corps will host virtual meetings to receive public comments; time and location to follow in subsequent media release and advertisements. Written comments will be accepted through August 3, 2020 when the comment period ends.
