Public urged to refrain from dumping and littering at boat launches
Littering and illegal dumping of trash has become an increasingly bigger problem at the many public boat launches dotting the Lafourche Parish landscape.
Trash was dumped recently at Sanchez Boat Launch in Choctaw. Other than boaters leaving trash behind, camp owners sometimes bring bagged garbage to the launch, and others are traveling to boat launches for the sole purpose of dumping trash.
The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office continues to tenaciously pursue anyone committing a crime at a boat launch, and crimes such as littering and dumping are no exception.
Lafourche Parish Government is currently working on placing signage indicating surveillance cameras are present as well as future signs reading, "NO DUMPING." These signs are being placed to remind residents about littering and dumping laws, while also letting them know the site is being monitored.
