The Sparta aquifer is an aquifer of regional importance within the Mississippi embayment aquifer system. It consists of varying amounts of unconsolidated sand, inter-stratified with silt and clay lenses and extends from south Texas, north into Louisiana, Arkansas, and Tennessee, and eastward into Mississippi and Alabama .
The Sparta is the main source of drinking water for north central Louisiana. A little more than half of Sparta water is used for public consumption and more than 40 percent is used by industry.
