I am originally from waterproof, louisiana. I really love the small town and parish.Waterproof is a town that only has a certain amount of people and businessess. The things I would like to see changed about the town is bringing in jobs, more businesses, open schools, and other important things.

Waterproof is a very small town, small population. There is not much to do. It doesn't have alot of opportunity. With the town being so small, I do like the fact that the residents that live there are very united.
