Read Louisiana Statutes Regarding the Levee system

As a result of inquiries from concerned citizens, regarding the abuse of our levee system, the RRABB Levee Board hired two levee patrol officers to enforce the statutes available here on our website.

With the cooperation of the District Attorney’s Office and Sheriff’s Department, the statutes will be strictly enforced.  We ask the cooperation of all citizens to abide by these standards so that our levees can provide the maximum flood protection they are designed to withstand.
