Louisiana is set to receive another $52 million to fund ongoing coastal restoration and construction work. The funds are being allocated from Clean Water Act fines paid by Transocean due to its liability in the 2010 BP Gulf Oil disaster. The money will go to pay for two projects ready to break ground, and for studies to lay the groundwork for hundreds of millions of dollars worth of large-scale coastal restoration efforts.
