GRN would never advocate rushing into coastal protection and restoration. We’re certainly opposed to the “Great Wall of Louisiana” approach to storm defense. But we feel a great sense of urgency to get big restoration projects underway sooner rather than later.We therefore greet this news of a new Corps of Engineers investigation into coastal protection and restoration alternatives with a mixed mind. If the Corps and the state would simply keep the levees BEHIND the wetlands as opposed to in front of the wetlands, this study likely wouldn’t be necessary.In addition, we remain concerned about the Corps failure to meet Congressional mandates (deadlines, content requests, etc.) for the LaCPR (cat 5) plan. On that note, check out our new campaign, here.Aaron Viles is GRN’s campaign director.
