A Cost Analysis of Rapid Land-Building Technologies for Coastal Restoration in Louisiana
It was the objective of this study to take a first cut at understanding the cost structure of coastal restoration technologies and to obtain some preliminary measures of cost-effectiveness of these technologies. This analysis focused on restoration projects funded by the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act (CWPPRA, also known as the Breaux Act), the primary funding source for restoration projects in Louisiana. Projects chosen were those that included a component of dredging sediment with the explicit objective of increasing acreage in the project area, i.e., of building land.
