The project would most likely be located south of the east bank river levees.The Mid Breton Sediment Diversion farther upriver on the east bank of Plaquemines Parish would convey fresh water and sediment into deteriorating marshes.The Breton Ridge Restoration would restore a section of wetlands and ridge stretching from Delacroix to Black Bay, buffering against storm surge and providing new habitat.The Ama Diversion would feed sediment from the Mississippi into existing wetlands in the upper Barataria Basin.The Mid Barataria Sediment Diversion, the largest of the diversions now in planning, would influence areas of marsh on the Plaquemines west bank south of Belle Chasse.The Large Scale Barataria Marsh Creation project in Barataria Bay near Lafitte involves dredging and pumping new land by pipeline. Future projects would build on marsh creation efforts that have already restored wetlands and ridges near Lafitte through the pumping of dredged material.The Atchafalaya Sediment Diversion would pump fresh water into the marshes in southwest Terrebonne Parish.The Terrebonne Ridge Restoration would be designed to restore the historic Mauvais Bois and Bayou Dularge Ridges through dredging in marshes that have rapidly converted to open water through salt water intrusion.Hydrologic Restoration in the Calcasieu Ship Channel would isolate the channel through a network of dike and sill structures to limit salt water.The Freshwater Bayou North Marsh Creation in Vermillion Parish would build around 9,000 acres of marsh by delivering sediment via pipeline from the Gulf of Mexico or the Freshwater Bayou Canal.
