Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mississippi River Valley Division, Regional Planning and Environment Division South, has prepared this Environmental Assessment for the New Orleans District to evaluate potential impacts of the proposed jetty extensions in Baptiste Collette Bayou, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. This EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Council on Environmental Quality’s Regulations, as reflected in the USACE Engineering Regulation ER 200-2-2. This EA provides sufficient information on the potential adverse and beneficial environmental effects to allow the District Commander, USACE, CEMVN, to make an informed decision on the appropriateness of an Environmental Impact Statement or a Finding of No Significant Impact. The proposed action consists of extending rock jetties in Baptiste Collette Bayou. The current rock jetties begin near approximate Mile 6.1 and extend northward to approximate Mile 7.5. The current parallel mound jetties were built at the entrance to Baptiste Collette Bayou in 1978 to reduce the amount of maintenance dredging required for safe navigation. The jetties were part of navigation improvements to the Mississippi River Outlets, Vicinity of Venice, Louisiana project which included similar jetties at the entrance to Tiger Pass.
