Modification to Davis Pond Diversion - Suspended

The Modification of Davis Pond Diversion project is a restoration feature project that would optimize the operations of the existing diversion structure for the purpose of decreasing the rate of wetland loss and maintaining habitat quality.  The project was authorized under the Water Resources Development Act of 2007 - Section 7006(e)(1)(C) and the State of Louisiana’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) is the cost-share partner in the development and implementation of this project.  The project focuses on the existing Davis Pond Diversion located at on the west bank of the Mississippi River, upstream from New Orleans, two miles below the community of Luling, Louisiana.
