Louisiana DEQ raises awareness of nonpoint source pollution with March workshops

The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is increasing public awareness of nonpoint source pollution throughout the state with four workshops on the topic throughout the month of March.

The workshops are an informative opportunity for community members, businesses and other interested parties to learn about nonpoint source pollution, as well as the DEQ’s efforts surrounding it, like identification and reduction activities. The training sessions, which are free of cost, will also cover education and outreach.

The first session took place at the DEQ Conference Center in Baton Rouge on March 3. The next workshop will take place at the Tudor Community Center in Pineville on March 9, followed by one in Metairie at the Jefferson Parish Library on March 24, and a final training session in Lake Charles at the LSU/SU Ag Center on March 31.

Those interested in attending should register on the DEQ’s Enviroschool website, where they can also find more information about the workshops.
