How do industries affect water quality?
Southwest Louisiana's abundant waterways were one of the primary reasons industries chose to locate here in the 1930s. Viewed as a vital natural resource, community leaders, industrial officials and environmental agencies are vigilant that they be protected.
Because industries utilize a large amount of water in the industrial process, water treatment procedures utilize advanced biological technology to eliminate unwanted materials so water can be reused. The water is tested routinely before it's discharged from the plant. Everyone, including local industry, plays a role in maintaining good water quality.
