LIVINGSTON- Parish leaders want to establish a coalition to look at flooding issues along Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas.

The Livingston Parish Council discussed a resolution Thursday after residents complained about issues, possibly from neighboring parishes.

Specifically, people want to target levees and pumping stations in other parishes to determine if those features contribute to flooding problems in Livingston.

"We want a coalition of parishes to approach the state and federal officials to have them consider all the affected parishes when they build levees or put in pumping stations before they are done," said Larry O'Neill.

Tangipahoa and St. Tammany Parishes are expected to discuss and act on a similar resolution.
