Abstract: In response to the destruction caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the U.S. Congress directed the Secretary of the Army to develop plans for hurricane risk reduction and coastal restoration in both Louisiana and Mississippi. The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration (LACPR) Technical Report was prepared by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) New Orleans District in response to the Congressional direction for Louisiana. The USACE Mobile District has prepared a separate report to meet the Congressional direction for Mississippi. The New Orleans District provides comprehensive water resources management for South Louisiana to ensure public safety and benefit the Nation, while balancing the primary missions of navigation, flood and hurricane storm damage reduction, and environmental stewardship. This Technical Report informs decision makers, stakeholders, and the public of the tradeoffs that should be considered in future decisions in order to maintain existing risk levels and/or reduce risk along the Louisiana coast.
