Council P.V. Griffin stands on the flattened levee in Braithwaite, the marsh on the left and Braithwaite’s golf course on the right. A ridge of mud had to be recently built up after levee construction work came to a halt.

Levees awaiting bond news

By Tim Meyer
 
Construction of the Braithwaite to White Ditch Levee may soon resume after weeks of inactivity. As of press time, Plaquemines Parish Government was awaiting news on whether it would accept a bond for the Braithwaite back-levee, or decide to bid the job out again. Construction on the levee stopped when Integrated Pro Services, the contractors who won the parish's bid to complete the job, ceased payment to its subcontractor who was actually performing the work.
