Congrats to our Water Quality Team and Partners in St. Tammany Parish!
At this year's Gulf of Mexico Conference, our Water Quality Team was awarded the Gulf Guardian Award. This award serves as a way to recognize and honor the businesses, community groups, individuals, and agencies that are taking positive steps to keep the Gulf healthy, beautiful and productive.
Calling All Community Scientists!
Our L.A.M.P.S., Lakefront Algae and MicroPlastics Scientists, program brings together community scientists to collect and test water samples throughout the basin.
Join this exciting program to discover what is in your water, your rivers and streams, and at your favorite recreational places. Whether you are a student, teacher, or curious resident who wants to know more about water quality, we are always looking for more Community Scientists to help us Shine a Light on Pollution.
Our mission is to drive environmental sustainability and stewardship through scientific research, education, and advocacy.
We've been keeping you up to date with the latest conditions around the lake and in our basin since 2000. Check out our latest happenings and weekly results below!
