The Challenge

To Be Met

The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA) plans to construct 127 acres of beach/dune and approximately 259 acres or marsh/nourishment located within the Barataria Basin portion of Plaquemines Parish, LA in an effort to expand the Gulf shoreline’s structural integrity.

The Solution

Our Creative Approach

Because the construction area contained numerous private oyster leases that needed to be acquired under the Oyster Lease Acquisition and Compensation Program (OLACP) in order for the restoration project to move forward, TBS conducted a biological oyster assessment and coordinated with a state oyster lease appraiser to extinguish the leases and allow the project to move to the construction phase.
