Clean Water Shreveport is a multi-year program that is the City of Shreveport’s formal effort to comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) regulations under the Federal Clean Water Act (CWA). The program helps protect our community’s environment and improves the water and sewer infrastructure of our city.
Shreveport’s sanitary sewer system consists of 1,100-miles of pipe and 120 pump (lift) stations. This infrastructure conveys untreated sewage through our city to two treatment facilities for processing. Contaminants are removed by the treatment facilities and treated water is discharged into the Red River.
In 2014 the City entered into a Consent Decree with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). The Consent Decree addresses the City’s aging wastewater collection system and resulting discharges.
