The Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion will mimic natural conditions by directing sediment, fresh water and nutrients from the Mississippi River into adjacent degrading wetlands in Barataria Basin to build and sustain tens of thousands of acres. These new and sustained wetlands will provide vital habitat for a wide variety of wildlife species and a bu␝er from storm surge for communities and industry. Since diversions reestablish natural deltaic processes and continuously build land over time, they provide long-term benefits that constructed marsh creation projects alone do not. Sediment diversions provide a regular supply of sediment and fresh water to wetlands, sustaining traditional marsh creation projects while also building new land.
