Tentative Deal Struck For Lafayette & Broussard Over Water

The cities of Lafayette and Broussard have come to a tentative deal to settle a legal battle over allegations that Broussard used millions of gallons of water without paying Lafayette.

A proposed settlement was made public yesterday.

The deal would call for Lafayette to refund about $275,000 of the $825,587 water bill that Broussard was forced to pay Lafayette.

Because Broussard’s water supply does provide enough for their town, they purchase wholesale water from Lafayette Utilities System.

Lafayette Utilities System alleged in 2011 that Broussard had used a meter that bypassed the wholesale water connection which allowed millions of gallons of water to go into Broussard’s system that they were not paying for.

Broussard said from the beginning that they were not aware of the bypassed meter.
