City of Rayne issues boil advisory for several streets

Posted: Updated:

The City of Rayne says they have experienced a loss of water pressure due to water line repairs within the water supply system. The city says that the water produced by the water supply system, therefore, is of questionable microbiological quality.

As a precaution, the City of Rayne Water System has issued a boil water advisory effective immediately for the following streets: Pearl, Comeaux, Patricia, and Theo Streets.

The boil advisory will remain in effect until rescinded by the water system.

The system recommends that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming, making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food prep.

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 is boiled.)

The advisory will be rescinded upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and water samples are taken and shown the water is safe.
