The Parish recognizes that maintenance is a key component of a properly functioning stormwater system. As part of the Stormwater Master Plan development, the Parish is diligently working to collect the data to locate and understand the issues. Your feedback has been helpful. The Stormwater Master Plan will address outstanding and future maintenance and the associated cost as a part of the final comprehensive plan. However, all current maintenance issues should continue to be reported to the city-parish 311 system for accurate logging.
