A message from the Secretary

Secretary Dr. Chuck Carr Brown and the staff of the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality welcome you to the LDEQ website. All LDEQ employees share a mission: to protect human health and the environment in Louisiana. We will adhere to our core values: make technically sound decisions rooted in science, conduct ourselves honestly and ethically, strive for continuous improvement, be accountable for our work, manage our resources effectively and efficiently to deliver value to the public, and sustain our commitment to diversity.

If you have an environmental concern, you may find answers to your questions here. If not, you will definitely find a contact who will have an answer for you. We are here to serve the people of Louisiana, and this website is only one of the tools we can use to do that.
