Caddo Levee District
The Caddo Levee District was created in 1892 by Act 74 of the General Assembly of the State of Louisiana for the primary purpose of maintaining and operating the levee systems along the right descending bank of Red River, as well as the levee systems of Twelve Mile Bayou and Black Bayou. 

The Caddo Levee District insures the integrity of the levee system throughout the year and during times of emergency, responds with trained personnel and the necessary equipment to provide protection of lives and property. 

The Board of Commissioners of the Caddo Levee District maintains the integrity of the levees within Caddo Parish and manages over 10,000 acres of Caddo Levee Board properties, which can be leased for oil, gas, and minerals, agriculture or grazing, and comp and home sites.
