The Bossier Parish Police Jury approved changes that will affect how developments are built.
During Wednesday’s police jury meeting, changes to the Bossier Parish Code of Ordinances pertaining to water and sewer regulations were approved.
“Any new developments are going to have them build the sewer up to this new standard,” said Eric Hudson, Bossier Parish assistant engineer.
Hudson stated that a set of sewer standards referenced in the ordinance was updated.
“We updated our specs and we updated our detail that we require based on some of the pipe failures we’ve had,” said Hudson.
The changes aims to alleviate future pipe failures within the parish’s water and sewer district.
“This will hopefully alleviate pipe failures for our entire sewer district. Anything that the parish treats, or anything that falls in our consolidated/water/sewer district No. 1 it covers,” Hudson said. “Anything that’s in Bossier City stays like it is unless the city changes their standards.”
