Local Water Quality

The City of Shreveport is actively involved in protecting the quality of water in our local water bodies, including Red River, Cross Lake, and numerous streams and water bodies. Cross Lake, our drinking water supply source, receives special attention in this regard, for obvious reasons.

The Stormwater Section

The Stormwater Section of the Environmental Service Office monitors the quality of water throughout the city's storm water collection system to determine whether water bodies are being adversely impacted by pollution from construction activities, industry, erosion, and runoff from streets and highways.

When problems are noted, appropriate enforcement action is taken.
