By Holly Duchmann,
January 16, 2018

A local levee district will begin reinforcing levees from Valentine to Larose in Lafourche Parish next month.
The North Lafourche Levee Conservation, Levee and Drainage District awarded the construction contract for the first phase of the project for $2.9 million, nearly $900,000 under budget.
In December, Executive Director Dwayne Bourgeois and
Board President Cory Kief participated in a tour and a series of meetings with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials. The NLLD remains actively engaged with the Corps to protect our people, our property, and our way of life.
