After decades of work, a major milestone for the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion is underway with the release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The release will start the public comment period – a critical moment for those who care about the future of the delta to show their support.
Restoring the Mississippi River Delta will take large-scale projects that can restore or imitate the river’s natural processes. This involves the reintroduction of fresh water and sediment to the coastal system while preparing for future conditions of the delta ecosystem. Through principled management of site-specific projects, we can rebuild the delta in a way that is sustainable for both communities and ecosystems.
