WEDNESDAY, MAY 6, 2020 - 9:30 AM
Utilities will have to make emergency repairs to a water line in your area.  On Wednesday, May 6, 2020 beginning at 9:30 am, water customers on Old Hwy 51 from Stayton Court to Farm Road will be without water pressure for an estimate of 4 to 6 hours  while repairs are made.  As a precaution, and in coordination with the Louisiana Department of Health, when water is restored after the repair is complete, a Boil Water Advisory will be in effect for water customers who lost water pressure until further notice. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until lifted by the Department of Health and Hospitals. It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation by boiling water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise. The Utilities Department will lift the Boil Water Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health that the water samples collected from Water District #3 are safe. Thank you for your patience during this unforeseen repair and outage.
