Whether it’s for a new telephone service or other utilities, or perhaps a permit, you will be required to provide a valid street address, or physical “9-1-1” address. In fact, you cannot receive new telephone service in Lafourche Parish without a valid address that emergency personnel can respond to in the event that you call “9-1-1” for assistance. Occasionally, the address you provide to the telephone company cannot be found in their database and they will ask you to verify your correct address and call them back. In order to do that, you must contact the appropriate agency listed below.
