Louisiana Water Quality Facts
Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems
The state of Louisiana is fortunate to have an abundant supply of water. Groundwater is the source of drinking water for more than half of the state's residents. Most of this water comes from the Sparta Aquifer in North Louisiana, the Mississippi River Alluvial Aquifer, the Chicot Aquifer in Southwest Louisiana, and the Southern Hills Aquifer in the southeastern part of the state.
Drinking water for the state is regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to ensure it's safe for consumption. While perfectly safe to drink, much of the state uses hard water, meaning the water is high in mineral content. Due to the mineral deposits present in the water, Louisianans often notice a discoloration in their water that stains surfaces and clothing, limescale buildup on fixtures and appliances, and soap scum residue around sinks and tubs.
