"We're helping two water districts here in North Caddo Parish, along with Mooringsport," Blanchard Mayor Johnny Digilormo said. He says that help will come in the form of a new water treatment plant. His town is moving forward with plans to replace their current plant, which was built in the 1970s.

"Because of our growth up here, we were hitting our capacity at our water plant," Digilormo said. "So, it was to add on to our existing water plant, which is old, or look into building a new one."
The new plant, which will be built outside Mooringsport, will pump out three million more gallons of water daily than the current one. Digilormo says the new water facility will have indoor water reservoirs and membrane filters instead of sand filters.
"It's more computerized and state-of-the-art," Digilormo said. The new water plant will also be drought ready, he says, and the new filters will allow for more potential water sources.
"If we had to, we could use Twelvemile Bayou," he said.
Digilormo says the new plant will cost nearly 17 million, and its ground breaking should be in June.
...
Digilormo says the new water treatment plant will be paid for by a $12,057,000 bond from the DHH and another $4,930,000 from the USDA. Currently, Blanchard utilities only supplies Mooringsport with water during emergencies.

Blanchard Mayor Johnny Digilormo said at a time when the most recent Census data shows remarkable increases in population, the school district is oblivious to the gains in north Caddo.

Blanchard Mayor Johnny Digilormo said water use has declined slightly with the start of school. The town's aging water plant can pump out 1.9 million gallons a day, but customers are using 50,000 gallons or so more each day, which means storage tanks never refill completely. Digilormo hoped to have a new plant with a 5 million gallon daily capacity operating by now, but that project was postponed by about a year. He and utility superintendent Dave Cherry are keeping a close watch on water use. If it doesn't decline significantly, the town may ask people to stop watering entirely and quit washing cars until the drought breaks.

"I've been telling people, 'We don't want to come home one afternoon and turn on the water and have nothing come out of the faucet,'" Digilormo said.
