With Thursday's unexpected flash flooding and this weekend's impending rain headed for Acadiana, pre-filled sandbags will be available for Lower St. Martin Parish residents on Saturday and Sunday.

For residents in Stephensville/Belle River, the bags will be distributed at Stephensville Park on Highway 70 in Stephensville from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on both days.

Also, as a reminder, there are two sandbag locations open for Lafayette Parish residents

  • LCG Compost Facility, located at 400 Dugas Rd., off North University Ave. (permanent, regular sandbag site)
  • South District sandbag site, located at 1017 Fortune Rd. in Youngsville (permanent, regular sandbag site)

The sites are "self-bagging," meaning residents will need to fill their own bags with the equipment provided at the two sites. You are limited to 4 sandbags per exterior door, with a maximum of 20 sandbags per household.
