Environmental Assessment Municipal Yacht Harbor Fishing Pier, City of New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana (November 2012)

Main Content

Hurricane Katrina destroyed the original fishing pier facility beyond repair from storm surge.  The MYHMC has indicated that the fishing pier would be better relocated north of Breakwater Drive, on the outside perimeter of a concrete breakwater wall, to be out of the path of the 17th Street Canal outflow. In its current dilapidated condition the original pier represents a primary and secondary safety hazard to the public and diminishes the overall service, capacity and scenic integrity of the publically accessible MYH.  The project site is a public outdoor use area along the west and northern sides of Breakwater Drive north of West End Park. Public facilities include: the remnants of the original pier facility, the remnants of a public restroom structure adjacent to the original pier that was leveled from storm surge during Hurricane Katrina, freshwater faucets, street lighting, parking areas for vehicles and vehicles with boat trailers, boat ramps, a breakwater wall and the open space recreational area (maintained lawn area) of Breakwater Park. . FEMA has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) to meet its environmental review responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the Council on Environmental Quality’s (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 C.F.R. Parts 1500 through 1508), and FEMA’s implementing regulations (44 C.F.R. Part 10).
