About the NLLD

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

Construction Begins on Reach D2 of Lockport to Larose Levee Project


Work has begun on a project to rehabilitate and lift a flood protection levee near the Larose Pump Station, part of the Lockport to Larose levee project.  

With joint funding from an Intergovernmental Agreement with the State of Louisiana through the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, the NLLD is moving forward with an interim plan to rehabilitate approximately 3,900 linear feet of flood protection, followed by the lifting of 5,500 feet of flood protection levee to a construction grade elevation of 7  feet above sea level.

The work area for this project is from the Larose Pump Station at the GIWW going up the bayou to a point just over a mile to the west.

Womack and Sons Construction Group, Inc. was awarded a 240 day contract in the amount of $729,352.50 as the lowest responsible bid for the project and was authorized to begin work on August 1.
Picciola and Associates, Inc. is the project engineer.

The Lockport to Larose Reach D2 Project is a continuation of a levee rehabilitation done back in late 2013 and early 2014.


NLLD Joins Morganza Action Coalition

The North Lafourche Levee District has become a member of the Morganza Action Coalition (MAC) as MAC expands its work to include promoting and expediting flood protection in Lafourche Parish.

"The District works on a regular basis with Terrebonne and South Lafourche Levee Districts and MAC leaders on projects and issues that impact us all, like construction of Morganza to the Gulf levees in Lafourche, Corps of Engineers mitigation policy, and FEMA flood maps, just to name a few,"  says NLLD Board of Commissioners Chairman Cory Kief. 

"By formally uniting as members of MAC, our levee districts and our region will have a coordinated and stronger voice in Washington and in Baton Rouge on these critical issues and more."

MAC was established in 2006 by Terrebonne Parish residents and business owners to promote federal authorization and funding of the Morganza to the Gulf Hurricane Protection system.  For the past ten years, the organization has worked aggressively to promote Morganza, and in January, expanded its focus to include advocacy for flood protection projects in the entire Lafourche and Terrebonne region.
