This project will restore 25 acres of marsh located on private land near the city of Montegut, Louisiana, by creating 12,000 linear feet of terraces. The newly built terraces will be planted with 5,000 cypress trees and 35,000 marsh grass plugs. The project will help protect a taxpayer-funded levee that protects the communities of Chauvin, Montegut and Houma. The economic value of the restoration is estimated at $380,496 per year and CO2 sequestration is estimated at 111 – 114 tons per year. The restoration will also improve water quality by reducing phosphorus and nitrogen.
