Water Quality

We're proud to be your local water quality experts! We've been keeping you up to date with the latest conditions around the lake and in our basin since 2000.

Lake and Coast App

Pontchartrain Conservancy is proud to announce the release of Water Quality's very own water quality results app: Lake and Coast! Released on both Apple and Android systems in August 2021, the app presents our Recreational Water Monitoring Program's weekly water quality results (as seen here). Download the app from your smart device's app store now! 


Lake and Coast App Photography Contest!

Celebrating the release of our new Water Quality app: Lake and Coast in August 2021, we asked the public to submit photographs from our water quality sample sites across the Lake Pontchartrain Basin! The contest has now ended. Winners are shown below and featured in our Lake and Coast app!
