Abstract: Jefferson Parish has a unique set obstacles to overcome in the operation of the drainage system. Situated in a coastal area and surrounded by water, the area has been developed through the construction of levees and pump stations. The nearby Gulf of Mexico provides frequent heavy rainstorms. While designing improvements to handle increased flows due to new development, the Parish is now faced with implementing measures to control stormwater runoff quality.
