Water Quality

sm_lthouseWe offer free education, technical assistance, and assistance with permits to the owner/operators of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in the Lake Pontchartrain Basin.

We sample ten sites weekly, another ten sites monthly.  As results are on our webpage!

We offer technical reports and maps on our site.

Coastal

The coast has always been our first line of defense against hurricanes for southeast Louisiana, so we developed the Multiple Lines of Defense Strategy designed to help save our coast.

We produce Hydrocoast maps for the Pontchartrain and Barataria Basin.

Education

We educate the public on important issues affecting the Pontchartrain Basin.

Learn about the sources of pollution and the work being done to stop it so our many basin habitats can flourish.

Our mission is to restore the Pontchartrain Basin for the benefit of this and future generations.
