Maritime Lake Pontchartrain
Color photo prints of boats and barges underway at twilight in Slidell illustrates Louisiana commerce as part of the shifting regional landscape. In the years following Hurricane Katrina Lake Pontchartrain has been an epicenter of environmental mitigation, wetlands conservation management, storm damage risk reduction, debris removal as well as fishing, crabbing, shrimping and oystering. The latter four now face an uncertain future due to the three years in a row opening of the Bonnet Carré Spillway. This mechanically controlled concrete weir and floodway provides the controlled release of Mississippi River flows, diverting channels of fresh water into the normally brackish lake to make sure New Orleans, (about 12 miles away), doesn’t flood from the river. The open spillway pollutes Lake Pontchartrain’s ecosystem affecting the local seafood industry and curtails leisure fishing.

The Southeastern Louisiana estuary known as Lake Pontchartrain flows into the Rigolets pass then out to the Gulf of Mexico, connecting the world to the region by water.
