VENICE, La. – On Monday, September 16, 2013, the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) Outreach Team hosted a media day event at the West Bay Sediment Diversion (MR-03) project near Pilottown, La. The diversion was approved in 1992 and was one of the first projects under the CWPPRA program. The purpose of the Media Day was to show the success of the project thus far. Members of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority were available for questions and interviews about the project. Media in attendance included WYES (a LPB affiliate out of New Orleans), WVUE – Fox 8, and Andre Lyons (an independent film producer).
