Protecting People, Property and Our Way of Life

About Us

The North Lafourche Conservation, Levee and Drainage District, or simply the North Lafourche Levee District (NLLD), was formed by an Act of the Louisiana Legislature in 1992. This state board has been responsible for improving flood protection on the west side of Bayou Lafourche from the Intracoastal Waterway in Larose to the northern edge of the Parish.

In 2006, through a statewide re-organization of levee boards, the North Lafourche Levee District was given additional jurisdiction over the east side of Bayou Lafourche, again from the Intracoastal Waterway in Larose to the northern end of Lafourche Parish. This area of the parish was previously under the jurisdiction of the Lafourche Basin Levee District. The North Lafourche Levee District is now all of Lafourche Parish north of the Intracoastal Canal.

The NLLD is governed by a nine-member Board of Commissioners, which conducts public meetings on a monthly basis.
