Cost shared by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the State of Louisiana, the Louisiana Coastal Area Mississippi River Hydrodynamic and Delta Management Study (MRHDM) seeks to better understand the river, its receiving basins, and options for using river water and sediment resources more effectively. The Water Institute is supporting the study in several ways, including providing day-to-day guidance as the CPRA’s technical lead, and generating modeling tools and metrics that inform the planning process.
