Danos Helps to Restore Louisiana's Coast

23-Jan-2020

Danos is helping with efforts to restore Louisiana’s working coast and the environment by participating in Partnership for Our Working Coast, an alliance of industry and environmental partners, led by The Water Institute of the Gulf. Other members of the partnership include Chevron, Shell and the Greater Lafourche Port Commission.

This opportunity comes from planned Port Fourchon improvements to deepen Belle Pass that will result in millions of cubic yards of dredged materials. The partnership is working to identify beneficial ways to use the dredged material to re-build Louisiana’s coastal wetlands to support the environment, communities and the industry.

The project made progress recently when the National Fish and Wildlife Foundationand the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that the Water Institute was to receive a $500,000 grant to move forward with the Partnership for Our Working Coast initiative. The funding will go toward the next phase of the project. Danos continues to be an active member of the partnership, contributing to Louisiana’s coastal sustainability efforts and supporting American’s working coast.
