Water Resources of Louisiana’s Parishes

Science Center Objects

The USGS is summarizing basic information on water resources for each parish in Louisiana and presenting the information in fact-sheet format. Information presented includes groundwater and surface-water availability, quality, development, use, and trends. These brief summaries of water resources will provide parish officials, local officials and concerned citizens with information needed to make decisions about current and future development in their parish. The work is cooperatively funded by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development and the U.S. Geological Survey.
