The Office of Coastal Management of the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) posted a Notice today initiating a 25-day comment period on a Coastal Use Permit Application for the proposed Commonwealth LNG Facility in Cameron Parish. The Coastal Use Permit process is part of the Louisiana Coastal Resources Program (LCRP), which is an effort among Louisiana citizens, as well as state, federal, and local advisory and regulatory agencies, to preserve, restore, and enhance Louisiana’s valuable coastal resources. The purpose of the Coastal Use Permit process is to make certain that any activity affecting the Coastal Zone, such as a project that involves either dredging or filling, is performed in accordance with guidelines established in the LCRP. The guidelines are designed so that development in the
Coastal Zone can be accomplished with the greatest benefit and the least amount of damage.
Details of the Permit Application can be found on DNR website in the Coastal Use Permits section.
