The $175 million project consists of four individual pump stations on the South end of Lake Pontchartrain, approximately 11 mi northwest of downtown New Orleans in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana.

Odebrecht previously completed a floodwall and two levee projects for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The new project includes the construction of Frontage Protection Floodwalls across the discharge basins at Pumping Stations 1 through 4. Also included in the project’s scope are significant improvements to two existing Breakwaters at Pumping Stations 2 and 3.
