This map has been developed to serve as a data portal to the various monitoring activities related to the opening of the Bonnet Carré Spillway and the Morganza Floodway. Collaborating organizations that have provided their monitoring information are reflected on the map with links to their data, where available. This map only provides known monitoring information related to the 2011 opening of the Bonnet Carré Spillway and the Morganza Floodway and does not provide an exhaustive list of existing gages and other data collection points.
