Gov. John Bel Edwards and President and CEO Justin Ehrenwerth of The Water Institute of the Gulf recently announced the Baton Rouge-based Water Institute has signed a memorandum of understanding with Deltares of the Netherlands to pursue world-class solutions in coastal protection and restoration. The research partners will focus on key areas — from software development and watershed modeling to infrastructure and nature-based solutions that preserve coastlines — as a pathway for supporting Louisiana’s 50-year, $50 billion Coastal Master Plan and for attracting private-sector employers that apply the research to water management projects worldwide.

Water Management in the State of Louisiana

Louisiana Economic Development targets water management as one of nine key industries that will most stimulate the state’s economy, with the potential for 4,000 new direct jobs on the Water Campus in Baton Rouge and 45,000 new direct and indirect jobs statewide in the water management sector over the next generation.
