POWER

To view the latest outage information, visit Entergy's Outage Map.

Lafourche Parish - Estimated Date of Restoration:  September 29

Number of outages as of 9 a.m., Sept. 13: 27,310

Area Notes: While the estimated date of restoration is September 29, we expect to begin powering critical facilities and other social infrastructure within the parish in advance of this date. We expect to continue this focus while we expand to residential areas and restore power to the parish.  The area suffered massive damage, and the electric network in southern portions of the parish will have to be completely rebuilt.  These areas, including Golden Meadow and areas south of Golden Meadow, may experience outages that extend beyond September 29.  We are currently evaluating alternate solutions to be able to safely provide power as quickly as possible.   We cleared the majority of LA 1 to open heavy haul route to allow for equipment to be transported through the area of Port Fourchon.  We cleared all of Hwy 308 from 138.  We are working towards restoring feeder for St. Ann Hospital.  Thibodeaux Regional Hospital restored as well as the City of Thibodaux Water Plant.  Restored North Lafourche Water Plant, Rienzi and Sewer Plant.  Crews continue working in the Raceland, Matthews, Valentine, Lockport, LaRose and Cut Off communities.  Personnel also met with State Police and National guard to develop a traffic plan to ensure the safety of our crews and the public.

GARBAGE PICKUP

President Archie Chaisson has declared a parish-wide burn ban effective immediately.

Trash pickup service resumed Friday, Sept. 3 wherever trucks can gain access. DO NOT place shingles in the trash (makes receptacles too heavy). This route will be for HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE only; debris will not be picked up.

Drop off sites for mainly household garbage and small amounts of trash will be available at the following locations starting on Saturday, September 11th:

  • River Birch Renewable Energy, 2130 Bayou Blue Rd.
  • Lake Boeuf Boat Launch, Hwy 308, Raceland

  • 1901 N. Bayou Sr, Chine’s Net Shop, on bayou side,

DEBRIS CLEAN UP 

To assist in these collection efforts, we ask that storm debris and regular garbage and trash be kept separate as much as possible.  To assist these contractors in the removal of debris, it is requested that you place all debris at street curbside away from fire hydrants, low hanging wires, water meters, etc...  Do not burn debris or trash as it can impact the air quality and create additional hazards. To further assist in these efforts, we ask that the storm debris be separated into different piles.  These piles are:

(1) Construction/Demolition material – carpet, drywall, furniture, lumber, mattresses, plumbing materials, shingles and tiles.  DO NOT PUT this material in regular garbage cans.

(2) Vegetative Debris -  tree debris, leaves, logs, plants.  DO NOT BAG this material, DO NOTPUT in regular garbage cans

(3) White Goods(household appliances such as stoves, refrigerators, a/c units, washers and dryers, microwave ovens, etc…)

(4)Electronics – computers, TV’s, stereos, radios, and other devices with an electric cord.

(5) Household Hazardous Waste – cleaning supplies, lawn chemicals, oils, oil based paints, pesticides, batteries, or other items that may be of a hazardous nature.  

Regular household garbage has transitioned to once per week pickup until further notice.

Continue to put garbage out on regular schedule, if service is not provided on first collection day of the week, it should be provided by end of second collection day of week. Regular household garbage should be collected at least once per week.  If you do not have a parish issued garbage can at this time, you may use a can that is similar to the parish can, 60-95gal, square, sturdy, and the contractor will attempt to service it.  Otherwise, you can call to get on list for a can but there will be a delay in delivery.

The Parish expects to have up to 40 debris trucks and several debris sites operating by the end of the week. Operations will continue to ramp up to 60 or more trucks by next week.  The Parish will sweep all parish streets and collect storm debris from the public right-of-ways.

Drop off sites for mainly household garbage and small amounts of trash will be available at the following locations starting on Saturday, September 11th, 2021:

·      River Birch Renewable Energy, 2130 Bayou Blue Rd.

·      Lake Boeuf Boat Launch, Hwy 308, Raceland

·      Lockport Field Office, 6236 Hwy 308, Lockport

·      Galliano Library, 16241 E. Main St., Cut Off (located near Recycle Bin)

·      Republic Services Larose Yard, W. 39thSt., Larose (8am-4pm, Mon-Fri)

·      Thibodaux Field Office, 2565 Veterans Blvd ,Thibodaux

·      1710 S. Bayou Dr, Old Golden Motor property

·      1901 N. Bayou Sr, Chine’s Net Shop, on bayou side,

Try not to put debris in roadside ditches, if possible, that may block drainage.  

Any resident who has storm debris is asked to place the debris curbside at this time as described above.  

We ask your patience and understanding in allowing our contractors the time that it will take to complete the lengthy process of cleaning up the entire parish.  Once per week garbage collection is only temporary and normal garbage service will resume as soon as possible.

Concerning insurance; if you have or will receive insurance proceeds for the removal or disposal of disaster generated debris, do not place on right-of-way for collection.  

The Parish will be responsible for Parish streets. The State of Louisiana, DOTD, will b \e responsible for all state highways and routes.

The parish and its contractors are not entering private property to collect debris at this time.  Debris collection will occur at or very near the public right of ways. Property owners will be responsible to make sure the debris is placed in the proper location for collection.  It is anticipated that a Private Property Debris Removal process will be initiated at a later date for properties that qualify for assistance.  Further announcements will be made as needed.

Your patience, understanding, and cooperation are greatly appreciated during this time.  While there is no need to call our office during this time as the Parish and DOTD are conducting a parish wide collection of all storm debris and regular garbage collection, if you feel that you must call you may contact us at 985-537-7603 or 1-800-794-3160.
