Buras Boat Harbor Project

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 Wayfarer Environmental Technologies' installation of the OysterBreak™ Shoreline System using OysterKrete™ concrete, plus placement of vegetated berms.

The project included more than 1100 2000+ lb OysterBreak™ rings. 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.


Buras Boat Harbor Berm

Wayfarer Environmental Technologies did not build the vegetated berm for the Buras Boat Harbor project. Since we did get some great pictures though and it is a significant adjunct to this project, enjoy a few of the pictures.
