The Bayou Lafourche Mississippi River Re-Introduction and Pumping Capacity Improvement Project (Undertaking) project area is located in the north-central portion of the town of Donaldsonville, on the right descending bank of the Mississippi River, in the vicinity of River Mile 175, in Ascension Parish, Louisiana.   Bayou Lafourche Fresh Water District proposes to significantly expand the pumping capacity in this area to increase the supply of fresh water into Bayou Lafourche to benefit coastal marshes and protect against salt intrusion in the bayou's historical flow area and to meet the long-term water supply need of the communities along the Bayou Lafourche corridor. 


CEMVN has determined that there is one (1) historic property as defined in 36 CFR 800.16(l) within the Archaeological Area of Potential Effects (APE; Site 16AN36; Fort Butler) and that the proposed Undertaking includes ground disturbing activities that will affect the historic property in a way that will directly affect the characteristics that make the property eligible for the NRHP and per 36 CFR 800.6 constitute an adverse effect. Furthermore, CEMVN has determined that the proposed Undertaking will result in adverse effects to the Donaldsonville National Register Historic District (NRHD) and the individually NRHP-eligible Walter Lemann Sr. Pumping Station. Therefore, CEMVN has determined a finding of Historic Properties Adversely Affected for this Undertaking.
