Abstract : Presented are the findings and recommendations of the Fish and Wildlife Service relative to the New Orleans to Venice, Louisiana, Hurricane Protection Project (Reach C and the Barrier Feature).

This is to be accomplished via upgrading an existing back levee system and a segment of the Mississippi River levee. This report addresses the potential impacts associated with two of the five project features, i.e., Reach C and the Barrier Feature.
