CPRA Announces Start of $32 Million Marsh Restoration Project in Southwest Cameron Parish

February 4, 2021

CAMERON, LA – The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA)
today announced construction activity is underway on the Cameron Meadows Marsh
Creation and Terracing project located in Cameron Parish northwest of Holly Beach. This
restoration project will address a large area of marsh that has degraded into open water
due to subsidence, saltwater surge from Hurricane Rita and other storms, excessive
drought, and salt water retention as a result of silted-in canals which prohibited adequate
drainage.
