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).

As of Friday (10/13/17)


LGS has continued to work on Work Packages  #4 and #6 in areas immediately south of work package 4 and 6 that were not included in the original scope, but require attention.

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

- 10 of the known sites were removed this week.

- Debris is also being encountered between sites. 

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

- 88 remaining known sites 

- 507 Tons of debris have been removed to date 

- 71,260 linear feet of channels have been cleaned to date.
