Protecting People, Property and Our Way of Life

The North Lafourche Levee District

works to improve drainage and enhance flood protection for
65,000 residents north of the Intracoastal Waterway in Lafourche
Parish, Louisiana, serving approximately two-thirds of the parish’s
population. The District includes over 250 miles of levees and
drainage canals and 40 pump stations throughout north
Lafourche, and its efforts and investments in construction
equipment have prevented flooding from tropical storms and
hurricanes like Katrina, Rita, Gustav and Ike.
