HOUMA, La.- Dozens of rotting, abandoned boats will be hauled out of Terrebonne Parish bayous as part of a parish-wide campaign to remove aquatic blight.

The Courier reported that 43 boats will be removed from Bayou Grand Caillou, Bayou Dulac, Bayou Terrebonne, Bayou Dularge and Bayou Petite Caillou beginning in the first week of November. It's the second phase of a parish project aimed at clearing the bayous of boats left to become eyesores and hazards for navigation.

The Terrebonne Parish Council will vote on the vessel cleanup contract at its meeting on Monday.
