The City of Thibodaux received a $1.1 million grant from the Department of Commerce’s Economic and Development administration. This investment will support the efforts of the city to construct a 750,000 GPM water storage tank and a new 16” water distribution line in North Thibodaux. The project will address the city’s lack of water storage capacity and to provide adequate water pressure to Cameco, which currently employs 650 employees.
The city recently accepted bids for the construction of the water reservoir renovation located near the Thibodaux Civic Center. With grants from the Lorio Foundation and Federal assistance, the reservoir will soon be developed into an attractive leisure recreation area, including an exercise path, covered picnic shelters, recreational pears, lighting and landscaping and other amenities. Construction of the project is planned to start in October of this year.
