About the NLLD
The District includes over 250 miles of levees and drainage canals, and over 40 pump stations.
The North Lafourche Conservation, Levee, and Drainage District (known as NLLD) was formed in 1992 to provide drainage and flood protection services for the northern portion of Lafourche Parish, including the entire parish north of the Intracoastal Canal.
The NLLD office is located at 3862 Highway 1

NLLD Pushes for Flood Insurance Reform on Capitol Hill
New Louisiana Flood Risk Coalition Focuses on Risk Reduction and
Flood Insurance Costs
NLLD Board President Cory Kief, Executive Director Dwayne Bourgeois, and State Rep. Jerome Zeringue met with key federal policy makers in Washington, D.C. last week to push for reform of the National Flood Insurance Program.
The NLLD representatives are part of the new Louisiana Flood Risk Coalition, an organization of state levee districts working to ensure that our nation's flood insurance program is both sustainable and financially responsible.
The group met with staff of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs committee as well as staff of ranking members of the House Financial Services committee, all of whom will play an important role in re-authorization of the NFIP later this year.
Through the Coalition, our NLLD representatives are advocating for changes that would "grandfather" business and homes that complied with previously set flood insurance rules, credit communities for levees and zoning ordinances that reduce flood risk, modify the method of calculating risks to reduce the cost of insurance, and address the solvency of the NFIP in a more equitable manner.

NLLD Executive Director Dwayne Bourgeois and State Rep. Jerome Zeringue will be the guest speakers for the February 22 "Bayou Briefing" hosted by the Lafourche Chamber of Commerce.
