Recharge Potential of Louisiana Aquifers Maps

Recharge Potential Maps of Louisiana Aquifers were prepared by the Louisiana Geological Survey in 1989.  A statewide map, quadrangle maps (atlas plates) and a supplimentary report are available from the Aquifer Evaluation and Protection Unit free of charge upon request.  To order the report and any or all of the maps listed below, contact the Aquifer Evaluation & Protection Unit by email at DEQDWPPTeam@LA.GOV or by phone at 225-219-3510 or 225-219-3858.  **Please be sure to include your name and mailing address with your request.
