Abstract: The United States, Army Corps of Engineers, Mississippi Valley Division, New Orleans District, has prepared this Individual Environmental Report (IER) #11 – Tier 2 Pontchartrain for Improved Protection on the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal (IHNC), Orleans Parish, Louisiana. This IER has been prepared as a second tier evaluation for the portion of the flood risk reduction project that occurs near Lake Pontchartrain and is referred to as “Tier 2 Pontchartrain.” This document provides an evaluation of the potential impacts associated with the proposed construction of a storm surge risk reduction structure on the IHNC where it meets Lake Pontchartrain. While officially the IHNC is a navigation channel, the use of the term “IHNC” for the purposes of this document include all of the waters and shoreline bounded on the east where the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet navigation channel and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway diverge; to the south at the IHNC lock complex; and the north at the point where the IHNC intersects with Lake Pontchartrain.
