Lafayette Consolidated Government"s Drainage Department (LCGDD) is getting ready for the likelihood of heavy rains in Lafayette and surrounding areas in the Parish this week. With grounds already drenched, the forecast of possible heavy rainfall over the next few days and a chance for rain over 50% each day for the next 14 days, flooding is a very real possibility.

LCGDD is lowering the water level in the Camellia Boulevard Retention Pond and removing debris from critical drainage areas and channels around the parish city and parish.

Sandbags are currently available at several locations in Lafayette Parish including the cities of Lafayette, Broussard, Carencro, Duson, Scott and Youngsville. All locations are self-bagging and "residents must bring their own manpower" according to the LCG Facebook page.

Please limit sandbags to four bags per exterior door. Maximum of 20 sandbags per household. -Lafayette Consolidated Government
