St. Martin Parish President Chester R. Cedars has announced that additional locations for sand bags in lower St. Martin Parish are available. In order to minimize interaction among members of the public in securing sandbags, the following sites will be open to the public at all times:

1.      Two separate sites will be located at Doiron’s Landing near the carwash

2.      Bus turn-a-round on East Stephensville Road

3.      At the corner of Stephensville Road and Landry Road

4.      Two separate sites will be across the road from the Belle River Fire Station

As a result of the extraordinary circumstances associated with the COVID-19 crisis, all sites will be self-service.  However, anyone with any disability or who cannot obtain sandbags because of lack of assistance from family or neighbors should contact the Parish’s OEP at 337-394-2808.

St. Martin Parish Officials are constantly monitoring the water levels throughout the Parish, and our residents in Stephensville and Belle River are again encouraged to avail themselves of the self-service sand locations identified in this release.
