Marvin Braud pumps to be activated, high tides and rainfall expected

From Parish Drainage Department:
Marvin Braud Station will be activated today elevations will be drawn down due to high tides and expected rainfall.  The station will be manned through the night and the rest of the rain event.  If the Parish does not get the brunt of the rain bands the station will be opened as soon as possible. Sorrento Pump station is already pumped down and will be manned if needed. Henderson bayou will be monitored as well.  Frog Bayou Locks Are currently open at elevation 4.8’ and Manchac is at 4.5’ they will remain open and letting as much water out of Bluff swamp as possible before the rain comes.  as soon as Bayou Manchac shows signs of rising the floodgate will be closed.
