The City of Ville Platte is asking residents to conserve water as the city is struggling to keep up with demand.

Mayor Jennifer Vidrine is advising residents of Ville Platte to continue efforts to conserve water usage. She announced on Thursday that all water pumping stations in Ville Platte are up and running but they are struggling to keep up with demand.

“I know it’s hard to believe, but if we turn our faucets completely off for a while, things will improve rapidly. Please stop dripping your faucet. Unfortunately, we must caution everyone regarding the upcoming freezing temperatures and recognize that we may be dealing with these water issues a while longer. We pray for all communities in central Louisiana and our neighboring state of Texas enduring these historic conditions and anxiously await their passing.”

If you have a city utility emergency, please call our emergency line at 337-363-3763.
