The Water Institute of the Gulf moving forward on Port Fourchon project

Nov 18, 2019

The Water Institute of the Gulf has received a $500,000 grant through the National Coastal Resilience Fund to move forward with its Port Fourchon project.

The $500,000 grant to the Institute will be leveraged with private funding from Chevron, Shell, Danos as well as the Greater Lafourche Port Commission to move forward with an initiative called the “Partnership for our Working Coast.” The initiative involves dredging and upgrading the port, and then using the dredged materials for other coastal sustainability efforts.
