Southwest Coastal Louisiana Storm Risk Management and Ecosystem Restoration Project

The Southwest Coastal Louisiana Storm Risk Management and Ecosystem Restoration Project will provide hurricane and storm damage risk reduction and coastal ecosystem restoration in 4,700 square mile area located in Calcasieu, Cameron and Vermilion Parishes. Due to its low elevation, flat terrain, and close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, the people, economy, and unique environment and cultural heritage in this southwest Louisiana area are at risk of flooding from tidal surge and waves from tropical storms. Land subsidence, combined with sea-level rise, is expected to increase the potential for coastal flooding, shoreline erosion, saltwater intrusion, and loss of wetland and Chenier habitats in the future.
