Walsworth, Mike.jpg

The Union-Lincoln Regional Water Supply Initiative would be able to purchase state-owned acreage upon which the group wants to build a water treatment plant, if the Legislature agrees.
Sen. Mike Walsworth, R-West Monroe, is asking lawmakers to approve selling approximately 21.5 acres in the Old D’Arbonne State Park in Farmerville to the initiative for the appraised price of the property — $65,000.
