Routine drainage maintenance in Ouachita Parish concerns mainly roadside drainage. The Public Works Department has three Gradall excavators performing road side drainage maintenance. Off road drainage situations are currently not funded on a regular basis.
When a drainage problem is reported an inspection request is generated. This request will be forwarded to Keith Styron, Public Works Supevisor. Survey grade work may need to be completed before work can commence. You may report a drainage problem by calling 318-387-2383 or complete our online Production Request Form.
Occasionally a road must be closed so repairs can be made to underground drainage structures. Click on Road Closures to check which road may be closed.
