Calcasieu Waterworks No. 5 of wards 3 and 8 has issued another boil advisory, effective immediately, for U.S. 90 from Goodman Road, west to Bunker Road, south on Bunker Road to Vincent Street and north on Bunker Road to the railroad tracks. All of Goodman Lane is affected.

The reason for the advisory is another water main break in the area.

It is recommended that all residents in the affected area disinfect their water before consuming it, including fountain drinks; making ice; brushing teeth; or using it for food preparation.

Boil the water for one 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 district will rescind this boil advisory once it’s given the all-clear from the Louisiana Department of Health’s Office of Public Health.
