Bayou Vermillion District is expressing their appreciation for Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office Inmate Work Crews having been deployed to help sandbag a breach in a Bayou Vermilion levee at Vermilionville. The levee adjacent to Vermilionville failed over the weekend. Sandbagging by Sheriff’s Deputies and Inmate crews working most of the day Saturday, helped keep parts of Vermilionville from flooding.
