Jefferson Parish has more water than land area, which means when Southeast Louisiana is hit by a heavy rain event, flooding can ensue. That’s why our department is working hard to help educate homeowners about the importance of making changes around their homes and yards to better manage stormwater runoff and protect the integrity of our flood protection infrastructure. One way everybody can contribute to this effort is by incorporating green infrastructure into our homes and everyday routines. This practice not only provide additional flood protection, but also helps produce cleaner air and water.
