Opponents of a proposed bond-financed pump station in St. Charles Parish have filed a new lawsuit seeking to stop the project.

Original plaintiffs Jara Roux and Councilwoman Carolyn Schexnaydre dropped their suit claiming the $20 million pump station was overpriced after they failed to publish two notices in the parish’s weekly legal newspaper in advance of a hearing in state district court. The notices are required under Louisiana’s Bond Validation Act, under which the suit had been filed.
