Sprucing Up the Ouachita River Seawall.

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Parishwide Partners

The aging concrete seawall which protects the city from flooding if the river overflows its banks in West Monroe will get a long-needed face lift this year.  A grant from Home Depot and materials donated by Sherwin Williams will make it possible.  AmeriCorps, Keep West Monroe Beautiful, agents from Keller Williams Realty and other community organizations will provide the volunteer labor.

The project will be kicked off Jan. 16-18 in conjunction with the national Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.

West Monroe's AmeriCorps coordinator Alicia Stewart said volunteers will paint bricks and wrought iron designs on the seawall.  She worked with West Monroe historian Ron Downing to come up with the wrought iron design, similar to the actual wrought iron used around the perimeter of the city's old cemetery.

Join us! After the frigid temps of the past week, you never know about Louisiana weather--it may be cold, or it could be 70-degrees and sunny. Either way, it's a worthwhile project to beautify a part of the city that is seen by thousands every day.

Pictures will be added after the initial work day, so stay tuned!

PS. We'll be on the LAND side of the seawall, not the part nearest the rising water :-)
