dc.description.abstractThis technical note describes a demonstration project for evaluating wetland restoration designs in coastal Louisiana. The goal of the demonstration project was to provide general insight into an alternative method for engineering creation and/or restoration of wetlands. Siphons are used to draw water and sediment from the Mississippi River into wetland zones that have been cut off from the river by flood levees. Siphons may offer an alternative for restoration of degraded freshwater marsh by providing water to counteract saltwater intrusion and sediments to restore freshwater wetland that is being converted to brackish marsh, salt marsh and open water due to regional subsidence.en_US
