League of Women Voters host public forum
Lafayette, LA (KADN) — Water quality was a subject on the minds of many at a public forum held this afternoon. The League of Women Voters of Lafayette hosted an informative session on local water issues at The Daily Advertiser with many local officials, such as the president of LUS Terry Huval, among many in attendance.
"We'd just like to understand what does happen from the source of our water to our faucets. To understand better if there are issues are there threats to the purity of our water. We'd like to hear what security issues are being addressed, and we also care about the source of our water," says Dr. Margaret Hargroder, organizer of event and member of League of Women Voters.
A panel made up of officials from LUS and environmentalists discussed the scarcity of water sources, security challenges, and answered questions of water purity. Environmentalist Harold Schoeffler also discussed a special report on the Chicot Aquifer.
