The boil water advisory has been lifted for the Brookhollow Subdivision in Lafayette.


January 16, 2019

The Brookhollow Subdivision in Lafayette experienced a break in a water line on Wednesday.

As a precaution, a boil water advisory was issued to all residents living in the neighborhood (Creekside Drive,
Country Morning Court and Greenside Court).

It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:

Boil 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.)
