The comment period follows last week’s Office of Conservation-hosted workshop for the state Water Resources Commission (WRC) in Baton Rouge, held to help outline the next steps in the formulation of a state water plan. The office serves as the staffing agency for WRC, which has authority to evaluate the state’s ground and surface water resources, including current and projected demands, inventory of water supplies, and identifying potential future deficit areas.
In a recent resolution, WRC stated its ultimate goal in this way – “development of a comprehensive statewide water resources management plan that will provide a sound basis for supplying Louisiana’s future water needs.”
Office of Conservation calls for public input to the Water Resources Commission . . .
the Office of Conservation will take public comments through the close of business on Monday, November 4, 2013.
