Registered Water Wells still in use listed below in red

 

In reply to what Mike Thompson said about 17 ground water wells at Poverty Point.

Wells producing in excess of fifty thousand gallons a day require registration. DOTD well files show Poverty Point still uses

4 large-bore 16-inch Groundwater Wells. Taxpayers paid $13,397 in 2004 to repair the pumping station at Poverty Point.

 

Lakefront property owners may not tolerate low water levels, but the DOTD requiring Wells at lakes for use in times of drought

create problems with groundwater Aquifers. If these wells are required at all reservoirs then the lakes are not needed.

Is the Groundwater Commission aware of this D.O.T.D. requirement? Taxpayers would like to know about the two pumps importing water

60 miles from Lake Chicot at Lake Village Arkansas? What is our agreement with Arkansas? Is this a pipeline, and can other parishes use

it to relieve strain on the Sparta Aquifer? Could it be that Denmon Engineering miscalculated the watershed, and Poverty Point the failure

wasn’t built for water since it is known as the big boondoggle. Many questions still remain unanswered about Thompson and Poverty Point.
