Fish-Frog Bayou Flood Control Structure groundbreaking

On Wednesday, January 12, 2022, the Ascension Parish East Ascension Consolidated Gravity Drainage District No. 1 and the Pontchartrain Levee District broke ground on the Fish-Frog Bayou Flood Control Structure. The new flood control advancement is located on Alligator Bayou Road and will aid in helping to control water rises in areas like Bayou Manchac.

Parish President Clint Cointment, Commissioners and all others involved say the flood structure is much needed and has been a long time in the planning and coordination phase and we are excited to finally have construction begin.
