The Primary Missions of the Bossier Levee District are as follows:
A. To maintain the existing levee system in a condition that will insure its integrity and capability to safely withstand river stages anticipated by design and construction;
B. To improve by construction or support the construction by others of new or enhanced levels of protection as design parameters change or higher levels of protection are authorized; and
C. To anticipate weaknesses in the system and actively respond with necessary emergency measures when the levees are being subjected to river stages that would cause flooding of lands within the district.
D. To maintain selected drainage channels within the district to ensure proper drainage, thereby reducing flooding.
The above referenced missions are paramount. Other activities in which the District may become involved are secondary or lesser priority missions.
