Orion Marine Group, Inc. (NYSE: ORN) has announced a contract award of approximately $18 million.

The group’s wholly owned subsidiary, F. Miller Construction, LLC. received the contract from the Bayou Lafourche Fresh Water District for Phase I of the Restoration of the bayou. As part of the contract, F. Miller Construction will restore the watershed and increase the capacity of Bayou Lafourche through mechanical dredging and construction services.

“This important project will help The Bayou Lafourche Fresh Water District increase the availability of fresh water access during emergency situations, such as a hurricane, and is part of ongoing efforts for Coastal Restoration in the State of Louisiana,” said Mark Korkowski, F.

Additionally, Bayou Lafourche provides drinking water for over 300,000 residents throughout three Louisiana parishes.
