ABOUT US: HISTORY

The Capital Area Ground Water Conservation District was created by the Louisiana Legislature through Act 678 of 1974 due to concerns in the region including water level declines of as much as 400 feet, saltwater encroachment in several local aquifers, and land subsidence caused by over-pumping of groundwater. The Districtís governing commission began work in January 1975.
