This restoration project will increase existing Atchafalaya River influence to central
(Lake Boudreaux) and eastern (Grand Bayou) Terrebonne marshes via the Gulf Intracoastal
Restoration features may include increasing freshwater flow into the northern Terrebonne
Marshes through repairing banks along the GIWW, enlarging constrictions in the GIWW, and
diverting additional Atchafalaya River freshwater into the Bayou Chene/GIWW system.
Associated projects are Morganza to the Gulf (hurricane risk reduction project) and the Houma
Navigation Canal (HNC) Lock Operation (a feature of the Morganza project).
