The City of Rayne Water Department says that the boil order issued for some residents of the city on Tuesday, March 31 has been rescinded.
The boil order was issued after emergency repairs had to be made to a fire hydrant. As a result there was a temporary loss of water pressure.
The areas affected included residents of East Jeff Davis to Edwards Street & North Arenas east to Hutchison Avenue.
Officials says water pressure has been restored within the water supply system to above the minimum required level established by the Louisiana Administrative Code – Sanitary Code.
Water samples collected by the Louisiana Department of Health & Hospitals – Office of Public Health have been negative for coliform bacteria, the water department says.
The water is safe to consume.
