Water resources of Winn Parish, Louisiana

September 17, 2019

Information concerning the availability, use, and quality of water in Winn Parish, Louisiana, is critical for proper water-supply management. The purpose of this fact sheet is to present information that can be used by water managers, parish residents, and others for stewardship of this vital resource. In 2014, about 2.74 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) of water were withdrawn in Winn Parish: 2.69 Mgal/d from groundwater sources and 0.05 Mgal/d from surface-water sources. Withdrawals for public supply accounted for about 71 percent (1.95 Mgal/d) of the total water withdrawn, and industrial use accounted for about 19 percent (0.51 Mgal/d). Other categories of use included rural domestic, livestock, and general irrigation. Water-use data collected at 5-year intervals from 1960 to 2010 and again in 2014 indicated that water withdrawals peaked in 2000 at about 3.81 Mgal/d.
