Water distribution sites for citizens in Shreveport and the surrounding areas in Caddo Parish are up and running.

A request for drinking water was made to the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness this week. That request was reiterated by Caddo officials today when Gov. John Bel Edwards visited Shreveport.

Additionally, local and state lawmakers have helped secure water through GOHSEP.
