Volunteers to clean Bayou Lafourche

Updated:

HOUMA, La. (AP) - More than 1,000 people will spend this weekend picking up trash Saturday along Bayou Lafourche, the primary drinking-water source for Terrebonne and Lafourche.

It's Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program's third annual Bayou Lafourche Clean Up.

Alma Robichaux, BTNEP's education coordinator, tells The Courier Bayou Lafourche provides drinking water for 85 percent of Terrebonne and all of Lafourche. Despite the waterway's importance to the community, the bayou is often littered with trash.

Robichaux said the group has cleaned up more than 30 tons of garbage during the past two Clean Up efforts.
