Some Truth to “Don’t Drink the Water”

Where is the best place in the parish to get a cool, refreshing, healthy drink of water?  Results of the 2022 study released recently by the Louisiana Department of Health indicates three water systems in Red River Parish scored highest and some are not doing as well. 

Systems earning an “A” were the Social Springs Water System North, Hickory Grove Water System, and Social Springs Water System South.

Coushatta city water system got a “C” on a score of 76%.  They lost points for customer complaints to the system or the state, state violations, and lack of financial stability.

Other “C” ranking systems in the parish were the East Cross Water System, Edgefield Water System, Martin Water System, and the Bayou Pierre Water System.

Those earning a “B” were the Hall Summit Water System and the Halfway-Carroll Water System.

The only system in the parish to receive a failing grade was Fairview Union Water System.  They received a grade of 50% or an “F.”
