Even though rain has been minimal and northwest Louisiana is in the "extreme drought" category, officials say the water conditions are no where close to the problems of 2011.
Water quality at the Amis Water Treatment Plant has improved because of new equipment purchased in the bond project, and Cross Lake's levels are managed closely every day to see how much of a drop there's been in recent months.
Meanwhile, even though testing wells in Caddo Parish have seen a slight drop, aquifer levels remain normal and safe.
