LACPR Final Technical Report Available for Comment

The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration (LACPR) team has released their final technical report for public comment.

The report, available on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’s site, discusses different possible plans for each of fine planning units, and describes the trade offs that each plan requires to achieve a specific level of risk reduction. Plans include one or more of three types of risk reduction measures: structural, nonstructural, and coastal restoration.

Once the reviews (by the National Academies, the public, and state and federal agencies) are complete, a supplement to the report documenting needed future action may be produced. The Final Technical Report will then go to the Chief of Engineers office in Washington, DC, who will forward it to the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works.

The comment period closes on July 24th, so get to downloading.
