The Department of Drainage works alongside the Department of Road Yard to maintain and manage the Parish wide Drainage and Flood Control System. St. Bernard Parish has approximately:
- 8860 drainage structures
- 17500 drainage mains (culverts)
- 18 local pump stations (SBPG)
- 8 large pump stations (LBBLD)
The Department of Public Works must not only manage the amount of storm water runoff that goes into our drainage system but also ensure that it is clean when it reaches our waterways as per federal and state regulations.
