Coastal and Marine Structures, Levees

PEC personnel has historically been involved in the planning and design of coastal shoreline protection projects and in the preparation of Drainage Master Plans and basin planning assessments which promulgated the need and  recognition of shoreline protection requirements.  Our firm has performed topographic surveys, right-of-way acquisitions and the detailed design of drainage hydraulic improvements necessary for coastal drainage improvements and shoreline protection work. Our wetland and coastal projects entail all elements of drainage work including environmental assessments and permitting, complete topographic and right-of-way surveys, hydraulic studies, utility relocations and upgrades, and preliminary and final design and plans.

Our firm has significant historical knowledge of Louisiana’s coastal Parish past developments and proposed future plans for infrastructure work.  In particular, Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) infrastructure projects done in the past and proposed for the future.   PEC has existing working relationships with many of southeast Louisiana Parishes’ key administrative staff and an understanding of their procedures for moving capital improvement programs forward into implementation.  

Coastal/Marine projects involve close coordination and permitting with key State and federal agencies including the COE, DEQ, DNR, and local officials. PEC’s familiarity with logistics and existing infrastructure systems in project areas enhanced their development.  Project efforts also included coordination with relevant coastal and marine agencies and offices from who permits and approval is required.  In addition, we work very closely with various contractors to determine relevant dredging and shoreline protection costs and concerns for working along the coastline. 

Examples of projects are as follows:
