On Tuesday night water was shut off in the city of St. Martinville.

Officials told KATC that the shutoff was done to complete work on two main lines. The water was shut off at 11 p.m. and officials said that it would reamin off for approximately four to five hours.

Officials said that once the water is turned back on, the city will be under a boil order until further notice.

That means that no water from the tap should be used to drink, cook or brush your teeth until it has been boiled for one full minute. This includes water used to make soft drinks.
