By Theresa Schmidt - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Cameron Parish officials hope if they build it developers will come.this year the parish was allocated $4.1 million dollars in state capital outlay funds to build sewerage at Holly Beach.

Parish Planner Ernie Broussard says they hope once sewerage infrastructure is in place private developers will want to invest in projects such as condos or duplexes perhaps.

The kind of sewer improvements they plan involve what they call wetlands assimilation-- waste is treated until it's considered clean enough to release into the wetlands.

Broussard considers the project key for long term Cameron Parish recovery.
