Lake Pontchartrain is one of the highlights of New Orleans with an area covering 630 square miles. The lake runs 40 miles from west to east and 24 miles going from south to north, making it oval in shape. It averages about 12 to 14 feet in depth. The causeway is the longest continuous bridge over water anywhere in the world. The lake connects to the Gulf of Mexico and five freshwater lakes and two bayous. Over 125,000 acres of wetland are connected to the lake, which are the sites of conservation and restoration projects. Efforts are complicated by the presence of humans with a population in the region of more than 1.5 million.
