Lake Pontchartrain Basin Restoration
These projects will focus on the reduction or elimination of sewerage related pollution and provide education and outreach to improve water quality in the Pontchartrain Basin. Projects include monitoring of effluent in receiving wetlands; moving a parish-wide consolidation program to its implementation, through the execution of franchise agreements for centralized sewer collection and drinking water distribution systems in priority areas; developing a method to further minimize the amount of pollutant and floating debris that enter the drainage outfall canals; and a study of wastewater collection and treatment throughout the unincorporated areas of St. Helena Parish.
