SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Some residents living north of Wallace Lake in northwestern Louisiana want to tie into the city of Shreveport's water supply as a precaution in case their wells run dry.
Last summer's drought has some concerned that the Carrizo-Wilcox aquifer might get low. So the residents along Caddo Parish's Goldsberry Road are seeking a tie-in.
The Times reports that if the Caddo Parish Commission approve the Goldsberry residents' request, 21 homes, each using about 9,000 gallons per month, could be taken off the aquifer and tied to the city's supply, Cross Lake.
