Lafayette Utilities System (LUS) has launched a power outage and events map in preparation for hurricane season and year-round operations.

The LUS Outage & Events Map, created in partnership with DataCapable, will allow customers to stay up to date during emergency and non-emergency situations. Customers will be able to subscribe by email and SMS/text-based status alerts to events in their area.

For down power lines, water, or wastewater issues: 337-291-5700
