PRESS RELEASE – MINORS CANAL WATER CONTROL STRUCTURE CLOSING

PRESS RELEASE – MINORS CANAL WATER CONTROL STRUCTURE CLOSING

The purpose of the Minors Canal Water Control Structure is to control the possible intrusion of salt water into our fresh water supply reservoir.  The salinity of the ICWW water is now above 800, that’s 4 times the acceptable reading for raw water to be treatable.

Duck hunters and the like will have to launch and return back to Houma behind the Fire Station near the old golf course near Jim Bowie Park.

Consolidated Waterworks released a PRESS RELEASE informing the public and Parish officials of our action. Please refer to the Press Release below.
