Pontchartrain Conservancy is proud to bring it’s weekly water quality sampling program to mobile devices. Lake&Coast is a water quality mobile application created by Pontchartrain Conservancy. Users of all ages can learn about the water quality parameters of 14 recreational sites around the Lake Pontchartrain Basin. Data is presented on parameters such as Bacteria Indicators, Salinity, Water Temperature, pH, Visibility, and much more. The public can access weekly updated data to help them know the status of their Lake Pontchartrain Basin!
Lake&Coast will be released for download on your device's app store in August 2021!
Lake&Coast provides data on 14 sites across the Lake Pontchartrain Basin. Every Tuesday we visit twelve recreational sites to sample water quality, and by Friday we publish our results. Processing our data can take up to two days because of the method used for indicator bacteria testing. Our methods for monitoring are approved by the EPA. Click each site's icon to learn more!
