Summary "Louisiana's offshore berms project involved the construction of massive and costly linear sand barrier systems, seaward of the coast, adjoining or extending existing barrier islands. Federal decision-making on the project implicated a variety of scientific and environmental concerns but evolved into a political issue. The State of Louisiana's "central priority for fighting the encroaching Gulf oil," berms became a lightning rod both for the state's criticism of the federal spill response and for federal officials' skepticism about the state's priorities"--P. 1.
