1. Walter Lemann, Sr. Pumping Station Marker
Inscription. This facility is dedicated to the memory of Walter Lemann, Sr. (1879-1952) a citizen of Donaldsonville whose untiring efforts to restore a flow of fresh water to Bayou Lafourche continued from its closure in 1903 until his death.

It was his perseverance which led to the organization of the Bayou Lafourche Improvement Association, to the creation of the Bayou Lafourche Fresh Water District, and finally the erection of this pumping station.

To such farsighted leadership and unselfish devotion to the general welfare, all progress must be dedicated.
