The Ascension Parish Council adopted the dirt fill measure that impacts 70% of the parish, which is located in the most high risk area for flooding. 

This comes after the parish has been working to find ways to evaluate the August floods of 2016.

The Council will now expand limits on the use of dirt to raise homes in the parish’s lowest area also while requiring that homes and businesses in the future be built a foot higher than they already must be.
