About the NLLD  
The North Lafourche Conservation, Levee, and Drainage District (known as NLLD) was formed in 1992 to provide drainage and flood protection services for the northern portion of Lafourche Parish, including the entire parish north of the Intracoastal Canal.

The District includes over 250 miles of levees and drainage canals, and over 40 pump stations.

The NLLD office is located at 627 Jackson Street,
Thibodaux, LA  70301.

Phone:  985-537-2244

Banks Cleared Along Bayou Onion and Maintenance Dredging Is Now Underway


The Bayou Onion maintenance dredging project in the Choupic Area is well underway as the NLLD recently cleared the banks of
Bayou Onion (top).  Dredging of the portion of Bayou Onion from the
Dixie Canal to Highway 304 is complete and the buggy is currently working on the west side of Highway 304 (bottom).
 Maintenance dredging allows the canals to better handle a greater flow of water, and it is vital for reducing the risk of flooding in the entire area, including the City of Thibodaux.
Phase 1 Drainage Project Completed on 
Lockport Church Street Canal


The NLLD worked with the Town of Lockport and 
Drainage District #1 to address drainage challenges caused by trees and reduced bank stability along Church Street Canal, a major drainage corridor for the Town of Lockport. Above are BEFORE and AFTER pictures from the Lockport Church Street Canal project. 
 NLLD is committed to protecting our people, property and our way of life in Lafourche Parish!
