Henderson Drawdown

The Henderson Lake Drawdown will NOT commence on August 1, 2023, as previously announced.  The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (“CPRA”) has commenced a major project along the Dixie Pipeline Canal.  Both St. Martin Parish and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries have determined that this project is of immense value ecologically and otherwise.  Therefore, after meeting with CPRA on July 25, 2023, and to avoid interference with the execution of the Dixie Pipeline Canal project, St. Martin Parish Government will postpone the commencement of the drawdown until September 1, 2023.
