Upon the declaration of an emergency by LDEQ, local governments and state agencies may "activate" a pre-approved emergency debris site by doing the following:
Upon activation, the governmental body shall notify LDEQ Headquarters at (225) 364-7901 that the site is being activated. This verbal notification shall occur as soon as practicable depending on communication capability. If LDEQ Headquarters does not have communication capability, please call your local LDEQ Regional Office.
When operations are completed, contact your regional office for a deactivation site inspection.
Once headquarters receives the deactivation site inspection from the regional office and all WDMRs, a deactivation letter will be sent and the site will be required to reactivate should another emergency occur.
