Free bottled water will be provided to residents of Calcasieu Parish on Friday in response to water shortages and boil advisories caused by cold weather.

The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury and volunteers from the American Red Cross will give away free bottled water at the West-Cal Events Center from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. today, February 19.

Officials say volunteers at the drive-through site will give one case of bottled water per vehicle.

“This is a great example of our staff and local volunteers uniting to meet community needs in a crisis,” said Calcasieu Parish Police Jury President Brian Abshire. “On behalf of the entire Jury, we thank everyone involved in this great effort.”

The West-Cal Events Center is located at 401 Arena Rd., Sulphur.

Bottled water is also available at the Lake Charles Civic Center in an effort organized by the City of Lake Charles, United Way of Southwest Louisiana and Second Harvest Food Bank.
