HOME SEWAGE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM FOR THE BAYOU FOLSE WATERSHED
South Central Planning and Development Commission (SCPDC), in cooperation with the Barataria Terrebonne Estuary Foundation (BTEF) and the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program (BTNEP) is offering homeowners from Thibodaux to Lockport area an opportunity to upgrade Home Sewage Treatment Systems.
The area in which this program is being offered located on the western side of Bayou Lafourche, off of LA Hwy. 1. Through detailed research, BTNEP has identified sources of contamination impacting water quality in the Bayou Folse Watershed, located in Lafourche Parish.
The Home Sewage Treatment System Program will offer an opportunity for property owners in the designated area to receive assistance to repair and/or replace parts necessary to make various types of individual home sewage treatment plants operationally sound. The service will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis until there is no more available funding. It is expected that a minimum of 244 homes will be served. Based on the outcome of this program, additional funding may become available to expand this program beyond the Bayou Folse Watershed.
