Danos Participates in LSU Visit to Port Fourchon


By: Tom Broom

LSU’s College of the Coast & Environment (CC&E) has been at the forefront of coastal and environmental issues for nearly a century. CC&E balances environmental conservation with economic development to improve the conditions that impact communities in South Louisiana.

The CC&E’s Advisory Council is dedicated to the creative development of the financial and intellectual resources of the College. The Advisory Council provides guidance in making the CC&E a responsive and effective partner with academia and private, corporate and public sectors as it strives to fulfill its mission.

The CC&E’s Advisory Council visited Port Fourchon to learn about the resilience and sustainability that comes from nourishing the surrounding wetlands through constant mitigation utilizing dredged materials from the Port.

The Partnership for our Working Coast, of which Danos is a founding member, identifies beneficial, nature-based solutions for the dredged material to contribute to Louisiana’s coastal sustainability efforts and protect coastal communities.

Owner Hank Danos and Account Manager Tom Broom represented Danos in this visit. Shown below are: (left to right): Hank Danos, Chris D’Elia (Dean of the CC&E), Chet Chiasson (Executive Director of the Greater Lafourche Port Commission) and Tom Broom.
