Our local St. Tammany Fire District 4 is required by the Property Insurance Association of Louisiana to test water system fire hydrants for operational and water flow capabilities on a yearly basis. Information recorded is used in part to determine our Fire Insurance rating assessment. This rate will determine what our citizens and businesses will actually pay on their insurance.
Starting Monday, April 17th thru Friday, April 28th, the Beau Chene Homeowners Association will flush our water system by releasing water from fire hydrants, as necessary, to remove loose mineral deposits from the system prior to the high flows involved with fire district testing. Flushing operations will be performed between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.
If, as a result of either our flushing or fire district testing, you should experience deposits in your water, please open outside faucets and run them slowly until your system is clear. Repeat this process if sediments are present in your indoor faucets. Problems with deposits should be minimal because the water has been treated since 1996 for mineral deposit sequestering.
The left entrance lane (Visitor Lane) at the East Gate will be closed Thursday, February 2nd, starting around 9 AM for approximately 2-3 hours and at the Main Gate after the East Gate work. Our contractor will be installing a new security gate arm. The right lane (Member Lane) will remain open throughout the installation.
All entering vehicles will enter through the right lane during this work.
You may contact the BCHOA office at 985-231-6285 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Our offices will be closed Monday, January 2ndin observance of New Years Day.
Garbage will be picked up on Monday, January 2nd as scheduled. For any water or sewer emergencies please call our main number at 985- 231-6285 and press #3 for Lindsey.

Re: Tete L’Ours Drive Culvert Replacement Project on Tuesday, September 27, 2022
Our Public Works staff are working on a project to replace a culvert (drainage pipe) that is approximately 35-40 years old. The culvert being replaced runs under Tete L’Ours Drive between the two driveways into Grand Cheniere Condos.
The work will include:
Removal of a section of the asphalt road and old culvert underneath road
Installation of new Contech A-2000 LADOTD approved pipe
Fill in and pack with limestone and clay material and allow to compact. During compaction the road will be fully opened.
The final step is to replace the asphalt roadway section either later this year or early next year.
All work progress will be subject to weather conditions. One lane will remain open at all times. Residents and guests will need to drive cautiously and obey the instructions of flagmen directing traffic.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding these projects, please contact Lindsey Adkins at 985-231-6285.
Our community is a very special place, offering many amenities at a low cost to our residents. One of those amenities is the security afforded to our neighborhood. We offer several different levels of security outside of our staffed entry gates. Some of these include:
24hr/7-day a week roving security presence by our contract security
Our Sheriff’s Department Community Officer patrols periodically Monday thru Fridays
Roving St. Tammany Sheriff’s Office Patrols on a once-a-week schedule during school bus pickups and drop offs
Additional roving Sheriff’s Patrols for 16 hours starting from Friday at 8 PM to Sunday at 4 AM
Security Cameras at all three Gates
From these security measures and entry procedures we also track data from visitors entering the community. In addition, we collect information from calls for security and review incidents to determine if adjustments to our procedures are needed. Our staff and Board also monitor social media and, when made aware of incidents, reach out to the resident for clarification and understanding of what occurred and if we can mitigate future occurrences.
One way to assist each other is to call security if you see something unusual. At the very least, reporting the event allows us to track what has happened and evaluate any measures that need to be taken. In our community, we are fortunate to have many layers of security, but still could benefit from neighbors looking out for neighbors and reporting unusual events to our security team or BCHOA staff for follow-up.
As a reminder, our security officers can be contacted 24/7 at 985-845-8495 or 985-845-7560.
If you feel there is an imminent crime or for your safety, please dial 911. To reach the non-emergency Sheriff’s Office call 985-898-2338.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact BCHOA staff members Cristina Donovan or Bill Maier at 985-231-6285 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
