The Vermilion Parish Police Jury is in the preliminary stages of planning a levee in the southern part of the parish.
According to police jury president Nathan Granger, the proposed levee would built south of Abbeville along LA 330. The structure would stretch from the Vermilion River to the Delcambre Canal.
Granger said the police jury will study funding mechanisms to initiate the project, including acquiring state and federal funds to build this levee.
