Note: The Army Corps of Engineers requested that the contracted work be broken down and submitted to them for approval in a total of 9 work packages. 


Work on the following areas has been completed by LGS: 


Work Package # 1 - Saunders Bayou near Greenwell Springs Port Hudson and Blackwater Roads (northern portion of City).  Includes 23 known sites.


Work Package # 2 – Draughan Creek from Greenwell Springs Road south to just south of Chervil Drive (southern portion of City).  Includes 17 known sites.


Work Package # 3 – Beaver Bayou from Wax Road south to the city limit.


As of Friday (9/22/17)


LGS has continued to work on Work Packages  #5 and #6. 

  • These work packages seem to be taking a little longer than expected due to a large volume of debris.

- 11 of the known sites were removed this week.

- Debris is also being encountered between sites. 

- 110 of the 219 known sites (total for all work packages) have been removed. 

- 109 remaining known sites
