Lake and Coast
Pontchartrain Conservancy is proud to bring it’s weekly water quality sampling program to mobile devices. Lake and Coast is a water quality mobile application created by Pontchartrain Conservancy in partnership with Tobiano Apps. 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 and 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!

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 and we thank all of our contestants for their participation! We received 160 beautiful photos. Winners are shown below and featured in our Lake and Coast app!
