South Lafourche Levee District Alignment

Reliable Flood Protection for Lafourche's Working Coast

The South Lafourche Levee District is a political subdivision of the State of Louisiana.  Led by a 9-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Governor of Louisiana, our primary duty is to establish, construct, operate, and maintain flood control works as they relate to hurricane protection, tidewater flooding, saltwater intrusion, and conservation.  A secondary duty is to establish flood control, adequate drainage relating to tidal or riverine flooding, and water resources development including but not limted to construction of reservoirs, diversion canals, gravity and pump drainage systems, erosion control measures, and marsh management.

In short, the South Lafourche Levee District keeps flood waters

out of homes and businesses in the South Lafourche community.
