Abstract
This report evaluated from a multiuse management standpoint the operation of the Old River Control Project. It was found that limiting diversions to the extent presently being considered by the Old River Control Project would effectively remove those wetlands that are presently flooded for a period of 0 to 4 months from the aquatic ecosystem as a type habitat representing as much as 36 percent of the wetlands of the overflow areas in the Atchafalaya Basin. Without stronger land-use controls, a reduction in the annual extent of flooding could encourage new residential and agricultural development in the present wetlands.
