The Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority – East Bank (SLFPA-E) previously, with the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority Board of Louisiana (CPRAB), jointly requested permission from the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to alter portions of the Lake Pontchartrain and Vicinity (LPV) Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System (HSDRRS) Orleans Parish LPV 109 levee reach (Figure 1) to increase the system’s current level of hurricane and storm damage risk reduction.  Since that request, it was determined that additional portions of the LPV 109 levee reach require alteration to increase the system’s current level of hurricane and storm damage risk reduction.  The requestor originally proposed to raise two portions of LPV 109 totaling 2.7 miles, as described in EA #553. The requester now proposes to alter a total of 6.3 miles of the existing LPV 109 levee reach, including the originally proposed and approved 2.7 miles.  The requestor proposes to raise the elevation of LPV 109 to 19.5 feet NAVD88 between Station 725+00, just south of Interstate 10, to Station 939+58, just north of Chef Menteur Highway. From Station 944+28, just south of Chef Menteur Highway, to Station 1056+26, where the levee intersects with the CSX Railroad, the requestor proposes to raise the levee to 25.5 feet NAVD.88.
