hog wild

Unnecessary damage has already occurred on the back levee between Violet canal and the E J Gore Pumping station. Hunters have inadvertently placed corn dispensers to draw hogs too close to the newly repaired levee along the 40 arpent canal.

Deer stands constructed within the levee foot instead of the required 400 foot setback.
Other deer stands and corn dispensers may be located down towards Verret.

Resident's concerns were relayed to Mr Bob Turner of the Lake Borgne Levee District and East District Levee Authority. Before the storms of 2005, hog holes in the levee were up to three and four foot deep. This is preventable.

Hurricane Season is fast approaching.

Let's implement those lessons learned.
