Environmental Assessment for Port Fourchon, Lafourche Parish, Louisiana (August 2009)

Main Content
On August 29, 2005, high winds from Hurricane Katrina caused both storm surge and wave conditions in the extensive salt marsh areas surrounding Port Fourchon. Wave action carried sediment from the marsh area located to the north of the Port into the Port Fourchon area where the existing buildings, structures, and large land and water based equipment broke up the wave action causing the sediment to drop out of suspension. The Greater Lafourche Canal Port Commission has the responsibility of maintaining the Port and canal facilities at 24 feet in depth. The Port is a major hub servicing the offshore oil and gas industry and its uninterrupted operation is vital to the economy of the area. Due to the sediments deposited by Hurricane Katrina boats have been grounding because depths at the Port are no longer at the required 24 feet. The Port has received FEMA assistance to dredge the sediments from the canals but is seeking a long-term solution to storm related sedimentation of the Port’s facilities.
