LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Officials in Livingston Parish voted to spend more than $350,000 on cleaning three waterways, states a report from The Advocate.
The vote was held during Thursday night's council meeting. The waterways selected include the Tickfaw River, Natalbany River and West Colyell Creek. Those waterways also funnel water to drainage ditches and smaller canals.
The money comes from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
