In 2006, Terrebonne Parish community leaders formed the Morganza Action Coalition (MAC) to promote federal authorization and funding of the Morganza to the Gulf Hurricane Protection System. MAC founders knew that the 98-mile lock, levee and floodgate system was critical to the sustainability and growth of Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes.
Since then, MAC has aggressively promoted the Morganza system as critical protection for our valuable coastal community and has pushed for authorization and funding of the project in Washington, DC and Baton Rouge. MAC expanded its work in 2016 to also advocate for levee projects in our neighboring communities of Lafourche Parish.
Today, MAC is a 501(c)(4) organization supporting the efforts of the Terrebonne Levee and Conservation District and the North Lafourche Conservation, Levee and Drainage District. With the support of our members, MAC is the voice for our local community as we push for Terrebonne and Lafourche flood protection that is critical to our survival and that will help us continue to feed and fuel this entire nation.
