Louisiana’s Water Management Strengths
Louisiana is an ideal location for water management companies with its proximity to the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico. Dozens of companies with capabilities related to Gulf Coast restoration and water resource management are located in the state, and billions of dollars are spent each year on coastal restoration and flood control in Louisiana.
At the core of Louisiana’s competitive advantages is the strength of its business climate. In recent years, the state has enacted reforms to create an atmosphere that Forbes magazine called “America’s new frontier for business opportunity.” Louisiana now ranks in the Top 10 states for business climate in the U.S., according to Area Development, Development Counsellors International and Site Selection.
