Louisiana is at the bottom of another federal list, this one grading our state on several key areas including: Water and Environment, Transportation, Public Facilities and Energy.
Here are some of the highlights — or rather lowlights.

  • Louisiana has 33 high hazard dams
  • Our state needs close to $7 billion in repairs to our drinking water infrastructure
  • 13 percent of the bridges in Louisiana were deemed “structurally deficient”

On the hazardous waste front, we have 9 sites on the National Priorities List. Our roads are the biggest problem on this report, which claims each driver spends more than $400 dollars on extra vehicle repairs and operating costs because of our poor road conditions.
