April 17th, 2021 - Tour start time: 10:00 AM (CDT)

Bonnet Carré Spillway address: 16302 River Rd, Norco, LA 70079

Central Gulf Coast Section and its guests have been invited to tour the Bonnet Carré Spillway hosted by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District. This subject matter will be addressed by USACE’s Mr. Ricky Boyett, Chief of Public Affairs, on Saturday, April 17 with a lecture of 45 – 60 minutes duration. The Spillway is a phenomenal man-made flood control structure protecting our marine terminals and levee systems from potential collapse, while maintaining a navigable Mississippi river year-round. Due to the intended general nature of the Tour, PDH credit is set aside.

This Tour is free of charge. Children are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Registration will end on April 16 or before, by reaching either 30 arriving automobiles or USACE’s limit of 45 attendees, whichever comes first.

As parking is limited to 30 autos, on arrival at the entrance to the structure, a USACE Ranger for the Spillway will be on site to guide autos to a designated parking area.
