Project Status

Federal Level:

• On December 9, 2013, the Record of Decision from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the federal Morganza to the Gulf project was released, signaling final approval of project by the Obama Administration.

• As of July 2013, the Morganza-to-the-Gulf Hurricane Protection System is included for re-authorization in the 2013 federal WRDA bill, which now awaits final passage on Capitol Hill.



Local/State Level:

Currently, the Terrebonne Levee and Conservation District, in cooperation with Terrebonne Parish Government, Lafourche Parish Govenrment and the State of Louisiana, are proceeding with design and construction of the first lift of levee segments, flood gates and the Houma Naviation Canal lock, utilizing local sales tax collections dedicated to the Morganza system and state funds.

The first lift of four levee reaches and construction of four floodgates have been completed so far with this local effort; however, construction of the full, federally authorized Morganza-to-the-Gulf Hurricane Protection System at 100-year storm protection levels will require federal re-authorization and funding.
