Orion Marine Group’s wholly owned subsidiary F. Miller Construction LLC of Lake Charles, La., was recently awarded a contract by The Bayou Lafourche Fresh Water District for Phase I of the Restoration of Bayou Lafourche.
As part of the contract, F. Miller Construction will restore the watershed and increase the capacity of Bayou Lafourche through mechanical dredging and construction services.
“This important project will help The Bayou Lafourche Fresh Water District increase the availability of fresh water access during emergency situations, such as a hurricane, and is part of ongoing efforts for Coastal Restoration in the State of Louisiana,” says Mark Korkowski, F. Miller Construction’s division manager.
Bayou Lafourche is the freshwater life line for nourishment and replenishment of a large wetlands area and an important component to the coastal restoration program for the Louisiana coast line.
Additionally, Bayou Lafourche provides drinking water for more than 300,000 residents throughout three Louisiana parishes.
