Environmental Services

The Environmental Service Division was originally created to serve as an independent quality control agency and regulatory monitoring authority for the Water and Sewerage Department.

The role of the office has expanded, and now includes providing regulatory/ environmental guidance and assistance to all City departments. In addition, the Environmental Services Division oversees the City’s Brownfields; air quality improvement initiatives; city-owned underground storage tank monitoring and compliance; Cross Lake Watershed management program; and the City’s storm water and industrial pretreatment programs.

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.
