|Lake Concordia group seeks new water source|
The Concordia Waterworks District No. 1 Board of Directors has agreed -- if certain conditions are met -- to provide water to a group of Lake Concordia residents along La. Hwy. 568.
The request for water service from the system was made by Ronnie Hendricks, who met with the board on behalf of a group living along Hwy. 568 north of the John Deere store at Ferriday to the area around Hwy. 900.
Hendricks said about 100-plus potential water customers are in the area which includes Lakeshore Drive and Panola Cove. Most of those customers are presently on the Ferriday water system.
"Before we started talking to everyone to see who in the area was interested we thought we would ask the waterworks board if they would provide water in the first place," said Hendricks. "We have some environmental hurdles and funding hurdles that must be dealt with. We could be looking at about $1,200 to $1,500 per household for those who want to go to Concordia Waterworks -- if we get that far along."
Hendricks said Concordia Waterworks has an 18-inch line running along the levee across the lake.
The waterworks board said the system could service the area if the following conditions are met:
Completion of feasibility study, permits obtained by Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, approval granted by the Department of Health and Hospitals, completion of any and all legal paperwork and the meeting of waterworks specifications.
Additionally, the waterworks board said it will not be responsible for any debt incurred in meeting the standards set forth.
