OUACHITA PARISH, La, (KNOE) - West Monroe city engineer Robbie George is talking flood issues to state officials.
"We've had a good bit of flooding and that's at the heart of this discussion,” George said. “How do we solve those? But how do we do it in a way that isn't hurting anyone else."
Back in August, Governor John Bel Edwards formed the Louisiana Watershed Initiative committee after an executive order was made.
Now, they're on a listening tour hearing from officials throughout the state on how to control flooding through watersheds.
