The Buras Boat Harbor project was completed in November 2014 for Plaquemines Parish. Issues facing the parish included shoreline erosion, loss of access via highway 23, increasing issues with storm surge, and ultimately the economic loss to area businesses and parish communities.
The project included more than 1100 shoreline protection product units. In a few short years the Wayfarer semi-artificial oyster reef will be fully populated with oysters. This will cement each section into a monolithic reef making them even stronger in the face of large storm-driven waves.
