Drinking Water Watch


The Department of Health's Office of Public Health - Safe Drinking Water Program monitors over 1,200 public drinking water systems throughout Louisiana to ensure compliance with state and federal drinking water regulations so residents, visitors and tourists have access to safe, clean water.

Safe Drinking Water Program staff collect, analyze and review water system samples to ensure each system does not violate contaminant levels and is meeting monitoring, analytical and treatment technique requirements. This surveillance helps prevent waterborne disease outbreaks or chemical exposure associated with contaminated drinking water.

The program's Drinking Water Watch database shows historical reports of public water systems in Louisiana. Drinking Water Watch contains inventory, analytical, compliance and enforcement data. Through this database, you can access public records for these water systems at no cost.

Please note that these data reflect technical information and full inspection results for each water system. You may see terms and measurements listed that are unfamiliar. If you have questions, contact information for each water system is included in the database or you can complete the Safe Drinking Water Help form.

For a summary of your water system's history, review your annual Consumer Confidence Report. Every public water system is required to deliver this report to customers each year to inform them about the quality of their drinking water and the services that system provides. Current Consumer Confidence Reports and a map where you can locate the system for your parish are available here.

You may also visit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Enforcement & Compliance History Online (ECHO) website to see inspection results for public water systems nationwide. ECHO contains analytics and trends, so you can see how your system compares to others around the country.
