Town of Basile water system is issuing a boil water for their water system effective immediately. 

The advisory will remain in effect until further notice. This advisory is due to low water pressure in the system. Mayor Mark Denette states that the boil advisory is due to the extremely low water pressure. The system at this low pressure halts any firefighting capabilities.

The demand for water due to open faucets are outweighing the supply, a message on Facebook states. "Please be mindful of heating devices inside your homes, and reduce the flow of running water the best you can. Feel free to share this post and inform as many as you can of this situation. I will continue to keep you all informed as needed. Thank you," Denette writes.
