The Empire Waterway is a 10 mile connection to the Gulf of Mexico from the Mississippi River town of Empire, LA.
It begins at the state owned Empire Lock, flows through the Doullut canal for about 1/2 mile, and then roughly follows the path of
Bayou Long and Bayou Fontanelle to jetties at Pelican Island. Commercial Fishermen, oil companies and sportsmen are the main users, and it is
maintained to a channel depth of at least 5 and 1/2 feet to the Empire Floodgate.
