APPLICANT: Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana

SUMMARY: The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA) has requested permits and permissions from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District (CEMVN) to construct, maintain, and operate the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion (MBSD) off the right descending bank of the Mississippi River, at approximately 60.7 miles above "Head of Passes" in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. To inform these decisions, CEMVN is currently preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). As part of the preparation of the EIS, NEPA requires an early and open public process for determining the scope of issues, resources, impacts, and alternatives to be addressed by the EIS; commonly referred to as "scoping". CEMVN will conduct three scoping meetings to engage members of the public and other interested parties in the development of the EIS. The scoping period to provide comments for the EIS will extend from July 6, 2017 through September 5, 2017.

MEETING DATES AND LOCATIONS: Parties interested in participating in the NEPA process and who would like to learn more about the proposed MBSD project and/or provide comments about the scope of environmental review for the proposed MBSD project are encouraged to attend one of the following meetings.
