The Yokely extension connects to the end of the federal Yokely levee and extends to high ground following the Charenton Canal going North.  The flood protection is to 10.5′ and includes earthen levees, removable flood-walls and canal gates.

This project in conjunction with the Bayou Teche Floodgate closes the gap to create continuous flood protection from the Wax Lake Outlet to the Charenton Canal.  This removable flood-wall can be deployed in under 6 hours.
