“As your Parish President I want all our residents to know that I am doing everything I can to help reduce the flooding issues surrounding the Spanish Lake & Bluff Swamp Basin. In addition to adding pumps, we have cut the road way at Alligator Bayou at Fish Bayou last Friday May 28. Earlier today I announced that the Parish has received authority from the US Army Corps of Engineers to open a new drainage system that will help to drain the Bluff Swamp area in periods of high water.”Clint Cointment, Ascension Parish President
