DAMAGE DONE TO WEST BANK HURRICANE PROTECTION LEVEE

Parish Advising Residents to Avoid Using ATVs

Post Date:June 09, 2017 4:01 p.m.

St. Charles Parish officials are advising residents to avoid using all terrain vehicles (ATVs) near the sites of the West Hurricane Protection Levee after sections have been damaged near the Willowdale Pump Station in Luling this week.

“We are counting on this levee to provide protection of life and property for the residents in the area” said Parish President Larry Cochran “Situations like this cost the parish unnecessary tax dollars and hinder our ability to continue efficient construction.”

Parish employees and contractors noticed the ATV damage on June 7 and have not been yet able to estimate how much reparations will cost.

Anyone with information should call the St. Charles Sheriff's Office at (985) 783-6237.

The mission of St. Charles Parish government is to provide high quality, efficient services to sustain and enhance the quality of life for all residents of St. Charles Parish.
