  • Vanishing Paradise : Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion
    Satellite view of area around proposed mid Barataria diversion Academic researchers and technical consultants have spent countless hours collecting data and modeling the diversion To predict this project s land building potential researchers first sought to understand the river s bottom water flow and sediment content The Mississippi River s sediment the key to rebuilding the delta consists mostly of fine material However in periods of higher flow when the river rushes at a rate of 700 000 cubic feet per second cfs or greater more of the larger heavier sand is carried by the river Though the delta needs both fine material and heavy sand this heavy sand offers the most stable base for a marsh platform This link between river discharge and sand suggests that higher flow diversions best maximize land building by delivering the highest quantity of heavy sediment Potential Land Building With research in hand scientists then created a 3 D model to forecast land building within Barataria Bay Using flow and sediment data researchers compared a 15 000 cfs and 45 000 cfs diversion to measure the differences in land building between diversion sizes Simulating conditions over 25 years the 45 000 cfs diversion deposited 32 million cubic yards of sand four times more than the smaller one This offers a hopeful look at the land building prospects of high flow diversions At the same time actual land building potential could be higher as the model did not include the effects of vegetation the presence of which aids land building by trapping clays and fine silts Mid Barataria land building potential at 15 000cfs and 45 000cfs Preserving Hunting and Fishing for Future Generations Diversions present a new set of challenges and require a thorough knowledge of river flow and sediment transport However with proper

  • Vanishing Paradise : News & Updates : Looking Back, Moving Ahead
    studies show how the oil disaster s impacts will potentially have serious effects on the gulf ecosystem from zooplankton to amberjack and Blue fin tuna Obviously we haven t seen the end of this disaster It is impossible to declare that the damages have been mitigated or that our wildlife marshes barrier islands and offshore habitat are cleaned up It is crucial that impacted regions of the Gulf implement restoration projects that are based upon the best available science and to spend every single dime of the penalty money from the spill wisely That is our priority The Vanishing Paradise campaign is focused on these goals as we continue our work in all five of the Gulf states In Louisiana that means two things Supporting the implementation of the Louisiana State Master Plan Ensuring the integrity of the financial mechanisms that fill the gaps between Plan Funding and Restoration The moral of the story is that the Gulf is still hurting four years after the largest oil spill in U S history Recovery and restoration are far from complete newer older Search Join VP on Recent Blogs 04 27 16 The Bonnet Carré Provides Plenty of Recreational Opportunities 04 14

  • Vanishing Paradise : News & Updates : What Would Justice For The Gulf Look Like?
    Macondo well Photo courtesy of the Louisiana Governor s Office It was the first time the fishing guides I had befriended during the spill seemed defeated Until this point they had remained optimistic that the Gulf could survive this onslaught of oil exemplifying the resilience that has come to define the people of coastal Louisiana But today they could not mask their emotions and the anxiety brought about by the thought of losing the resource upon which their livelihoods and their families depended Those of us lucky enough to really know the Gulf recognize that this ecosystem is incredibly resilient Yes there have been natural seeps leaking oil into the deep waters of the Gulf since long before our time Yes there have been countless devastating hurricanes Yes so many of the Gulf s critical coastal wetlands particularly in the delta have been lost But despite it all the Gulf remains full of life and full of fish But I think we need to be honest with ourselves as the charter captains were that day This unprecedented release of 4 9 million barrels of oil plus large amounts of methane and dispersants has caused near term impacts to the fishery coastal habitat and thousands of people s livelihoods It will cause long term damage to the Gulf with the full extent of impacts revealing themselves as the years go by That s the bad news The good news is that the Gulf region has a potential champion in the Department of Justice DOJ It s a pretty simple scenario if DOJ gets it right they will prevent BP from walking away with the bargain basement settlement agreement recent media reports have indicated BP is looking for To understand the crucial role DOJ plays consider the outstanding elements of the case BP still owes billions of dollars in civil penalties under a host of environmental laws such as the Oil Pollution Act Clean Water Act and others The Oil Pollution Act of 1990 introduced following the Exxon Valdez oil spill created the rules for calculating BP s restoration liability If BP paid the same per gallon amount as Exxon did for the Valdez spill the total payment would be in the range of 31 billion This money will be used to clean up the spill and restore the Gulf The Clean Water Act fines will also be significant If DOJ is able to prove that BP was guilty of gross negligence and the agency seems confident in their ability to do just that BP s total fines under this law alone could be in the range of 20 billion Thanks to the recent passage of the RESTORE Act 80 of these Clean Water Act fines will go back to the Gulf States for restoration To be clear BP flagrantly violated both the Clean Water Act and the Oil Pollution Act whatever settlement is reached needs to include robust payments under both these categories The surprisingly good news is the Department of
