Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group Asks for Project Ideas on Recreational Use and Nutrient Reduction
The Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (TIG) would like your input regarding natural resource restoration opportunities in Louisiana. We will consider a range of activities under the following restoration types:
- Provide and Enhance Recreational Opportunities
- Nutrient Reduction (Non-Point source)
Information on these restoration types and the Oil Pollution Act and criteria against which project ideas are being evaluated can be found in the programmatic restoration plan and in the overview of the plan.
You may submit restoration project ideas for consideration within these restoration types to the Trustees or to the State of Louisiana. If you have submitted project ideas in the past in connection with other Louisiana restoration planning efforts, including Louisiana’s Coastal Master Plan and Deepwater Horizon restoration planning efforts, you do not need to resubmit those ideas. Instead, simply reference the method of and date of submittal of those previous project proposals, and we will retrieve and consider them.
New or revised project ideas should be submitted through the Trustee portal or the Louisiana portal by August 14, 2017. Projects submitted after the deadline will be considered in future restoration planning efforts.
We will develop one or more draft restoration plans to benefit these restoration types. We will consider projects that address both restoration types and projects that will be implemented in phases. Submittals should include information about all project phases. We may also develop our own restoration projects for consideration.
Please contact us at LATIG@LA.gov if you have any questions. We look forward to considering your restoration project ideas.
