Is a river diversion at the Nucor iron plant one of 39 projects under consideration for BP funding?


Graphic modified from a power point slide from the OCPR.

by Len Bahr, PhD*

As many loyal readers will remember, I have long espoused the idea that the $4 billion Nucor iron processing plant, now under construction on the East Bank near Convent, would make a perfect site for a conveyance channel to allow Mississippi River water and sediment to flow into the highly stressed Maurepas swamp. On September 22, 2010 I published a major post on this subject and my most recent comment on the subject was published on April 8, 2012.

Mark Schleifstein reported in that 39 coastal projects have been listed as candidates for construction, using BP fines as the funding source. These projects were shown in a powerpoint presentation by Kyle Graham, Deputy Director of the Office of Coastal Protection and Restoration (OCPR) at the recent meeting of the Coastal Protection and restoration Authority (CPRA).

Had I been in attendance at the CPRA meeting I would have asked Mr. Graham whether the project identified on one of his slides as the West Maurepas Diversion (001.D1.29) is proposed for construction on Nucor property…and if not, why not.
