Canals dug by oil companies have contributed to the problem of land loss in coastal Louisiana. Louisiana and the federal government have created a few crevasses in the lower Mississippi R. to help funnel fresh water and silt to reintroduce what the Corps of Engineers took away many years ago. A crevasse is a break in the levees (natural or manmade) to introduce water and silt into the marsh. Davis Pond is an example of a diversion project that is like a crevasse but is a man made total controlled diversion.

Saltwater Intrusion is causing the marsh to disappear. Fish depend on the marsh. It will take numerous projects to help fight sea level rise, erosion and subsidence (soil compaction). The Mississippi river and the sediment that it provides, will be the governments number 1 tool.
