A Lafayette Consolidated Government contractor blocked the Vermilion River for hours without a permit while removing the Cypress Island Swamp spoil banks in February, potentially violating federal law.

Messages, design plans and videos obtained in a public records request show LCG contractor Rigid Constructors blocked the Vermilion River with four massive barges during the clandestine removal of the spoil banks in St. Martin Parish.
