Louisiana Governor and Chief of Engineers to Sign Agreement
The ceremony will be at 9 a.m. at the Louisiana State University Energy, Coast and Environment Building in Baton Rouge.
In addition, Strock will sign his own Chief of Engineer’s Report, a summary for the Congress, of the Louisiana Coastal Area Ecosystem Restoration Study. The study is an achievement by a partnership of the Corps of Engineers and the state through the Department of Natural Resources.
The study comprises five volumes, including the main report, environmental impact statement, public comments and responses, a multi-part volume from science to history to modeling and the plan formulation.
Under their gray covers, these books are the result of a complex job done by the team’s 150 members. They stand 7 1/4 inches high and weigh 15 pounds, 12 ounces.
To recognize those individuals involved in the LCA study, a pair of symbolic team achievement awards will be presented during the ceremony by Corps officials.
