The Jeanerette Water System has experienced problems with the water supply system.

The system lost pressure today, and until the water quality can be tested everyone must boil water before using to drink, make ice, brush teeth, rinse food, cooking or watering animals. 

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 Jeanerette Water System will rescind this Boil Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals – Office of Public Health that additional water samples collected from our water supply system have shown the water to be safe.
