Parish officials, including the OEP Director, conferred this morning and evaluated the current high water issues in Stephensville/Belle River. Based upon the prior distribution of over 67,000 bags of sand and the placement of 0.5 of a mile of poly pipe, pre-filled bags will no longer be distributed commencing immediately. However, sand and bags will continue to be available for self-service.

On Friday, the situation will again be assessed to determine the proper course of action for the weekend.
