BATON ROUGE, LA. – A Cooperative Endeavor Agreement (CEA) signed today will fund a $65 million pump station at the head of Bayou Lafourche in Ascension Parish. The pump station will help to combat saltwater intrusion along our coast and provide fresh drinking water to over 300,000 residents in Assumption, Ascension, Lafourche, and Terrebonne parishes. The agreement will also allow construction to begin this year on an $18.5 million floodgate at Grand Bayou in the Morganza to the Gulf Levee System.
