Residents and businesses in the areas north of I-10, south of Gendarme Road, west of Wilderness Trail and east of Janvier Road are still under a boil water advisory. The advisory was issued Tuesday.

Customers in the affected area need to vigorously boil their water for at least one full minute prior to drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, using it for food prep or rinsing food. The one minute starts after water has been brought to a rolling boil.

LUS officials are asking all residential and business customers to assess their water lines for any leaks or breaks and to continue water conservation measures. Report any water pooling or flooding in your neighborhood or other areas to LUS at (337) 291-5700.

To ensure water safety and quality, the advisory will remain in effect until collected water samples are cleared by the Louisiana Department of Health.
