San Luis Pass Inlet Management Plan

Summary

This project is to evaluate the feasibility of dredging and using sediment from the flood tidal delta of San Luis Pass for future erosion response and habitat restoration projects. The project involves working towards obtaining a USACE permit for removal of sand from the delta, preparation of an environmental assessment, and development of strategies to dredge sand for nearby beach nourishment and habitat restoration projects. Preliminary engineering, design and permitting tasks have been undertaken to evaluate the effects of removing large volumes of sediment from the delta, using data collected from geologic surveys and sediment movement modeling.
