Starting January 1, 2017 a monthly Safe Drinking Water Fee of $1.00 will be assessed. The Safe Drinking Water Program objective is to prevent illness and death that can occur from waterborne disease outbreaks or chemical exposure associated with contaminated drinking water.
The Safe Drinking Water Program provides comprehensive drinking water protection to the citizens and visitors of Louisiana supervising over 1,300 public water systems for compliance with state and federal drinking water regulations.
The fee was authorized by the Louisiana Legislature on April 9, 2000 for the benefit of the Office of Public Health-Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH). Please visit the Louisiana Department of Health & Hospital's website for more information: www.dhh.la.gov.
