Native-Stanton Constructability Services Joint Venture

Native-Stanton Constructability Services Joint Venture (N-S) with Legis Consultancy as a subconsultant has been selected by the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) as the Independent Cost Estimator Contractor for the Mid-Breton Sediment Diversion CMAR Project.

The Mid-Breton Sediment Diversion is a key project in the 2017 Coastal Master Plan intended to reduce land loss in the Breton Basin by using the power of the Mississippi River to move sediment and fresh water from the river into nearby basins, mimicking nature’s historic land-building processes. These projects not only build new land but also provide an ongoing source of sand and mud necessary to sustain and increase the health of existing wetlands over time. This proposed diversion will be located on the east bank of the Mississippi River at Wills Point in Plaquemines Parish.
