LAFAYETTE — A boil water advisory has been issued for Lafayette Parish Waterworks District South, for customers south of Ridge Road and North of Duhon Road & E. Utopia Road and Saul Road. This area also includes 600 and 800 addresses of Lagneaux Road.

Officials say an "excavation incident" led to the advisory.

Arlene Choate, superintendent of the waterworks district, says crews broke a water line while performing a job, knocking out water service to residents along Lagneaux Road between Ridge and Duhon Roads and side streets in the vicinity.
