LAFOURCHE PARISH WATER DISTRICT NO. 1
BOIL WATER ADVISORY #1
FEBRUARY 1, 2016 (5:30 pm)
The Lafourche Parish Water District closed a section of water line from Abby Road to Home Cottage Road along Hwy 308 in Thibodaux in order to repair a main line leak. As a precaution, we are issuing a BOIL ADVISORY for any customer in this area who had their water service interrupted during this repair. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by the District.
It is recommended that all customers described previously should disinfect their water before consuming it, making ice, brushing teeth, using it for food preparation (including fountain drinks), and for rinsing food by the following means:
Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. (The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that boiled.)
Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.
The Lafourche Parish Water District will rescind this Boil Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals - Office of Public Health after additional samples collected from our water supply have shown our water to be safe.
