|Corps to visit parish September 30|
Corps of Engineers' representatives will visit Concordia Parish on September 30 to discuss drainage issues and survey pumping plants.
The Corps and local officials will meet at the Police Jury meeting room at 10 a.m. and then visit several sites, including the locations along Cocodrie Bayou which are obstructed.
The Jury and the Concordia Economic & Industrial Development District are looking at ways to resolve drainage issues and want to know how the Tensas-Cocodrie Pumping Plant (TCPP) on Black River operates and want to see the Corps' water control plan. They also what to know who's responsible for the operation of gates, the process and criteria for the issuance of Corps' permits and how the Corps enforces those permits.
Jury President Melvin Ferrington says the goal is to remedy the parish's drainage problems, which center on Cocodrie Bayou and TCPP. These drainage issues were heightened at this time last year when 20 inches of rain fell during Hurricane Gustav, causing widespread flooding.
Heather Malone, Executive Director of the Concordia Economic & Industrial Development District, said "flooding and poor drainage affects the entire parish. We need to clean out the bayou and get a better understanding of the operation of the weirs and the control structures and an understanding of responsibilities."
