While East Baton Rogue Parish gets repeatedly hit with torrential rains, solutions to flash flooding are expensive and could take years to implement.
Residents are demanding the city-parish immediately address the mismanagement of the municipal drainage system.
On June 6th, the parish got hit with seven inches of rain within a 60 to 90 minute window in the morning.
Hurricane Barry, which hit the area earlier this month, dropped more than 20 inches of rain.
