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.
We 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. Our results are on our webpage!
We offer technical reports and maps on our site.
Coastal Sustainability Program
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.
The Coastal Sustainability Program conducts many projects around the basin, including scientific studies, restoration projects and long-term analysis.
We produce Hydrocoast maps for the Pontchartrain and Barataria Basin.
Our mission is to drive environmental sustainability and stewardship through scientific research, education, and advocacy.
