BATON ROUGE (May 20, 2010) - Today, Governor Bobby Jindal toured Thunder Bayou in a flyover where he viewed efforts to stop the oil. The project was completed just recently.

Description: Using heavy construction equipment, Guardsmen from the 225th Engineer Brigade built a wall of rock and sand to fill gaps in the barrier islands in Lafourche Parish.  Soldiers hauled, emplaced, and compacted more than 2500 cubic yards of rock and sand to close off this 420 foot gap near Thunder Bayou.
