Project Name: Valentine East, Lockport-to-Larose New Valentine-Ludevine

Budget Value: $2,275,000.00

Project Area: Valentine East

Description: This project is to address some failures of a levee running from Hamilton St. in Larose about 5,500 feet towards the Ludevine Pump Station along the Blackwater Canal. This stretch of levee has long been a concern of ours because it is too short and has no berm on either side.  It has a canal open to the GIWW on the toe of the outside and a ditch/canal and/or crawfish pond on theinside at the toe. What we observed was clearly an Emergency requiring immediate attention. The goal being to frame up the project so that initial repairs can be made prior to this year’s storm season.

Project Name: Jessie Dufrene FDA/Home Place FDA

Budget Value: TBD

Project Area: Gheens

Description: There is a local landowner who may be able to provide property that the District could use to provide material for a haul project for this levee at no cost to the District. There are already accurate LIDAR data of that levee section, and the work might be able to be done without a need for a permit or any over road hauling. All South Engineers will make some cost of construction estimates for various lifts working exclusively within the footprint of the existing levee.
