DUSON, La.  — The Town of Duson is asking its residents to shut off their water valves in an effort to preserve the water supply after it reached critically low levels on Tuesday.

According to a release from Duson Police Chief Kip Judice, the Duson water supply has reached critically low levels due to the number of residents who are dripping water and/or customers with busted pipes with water flowing.

To avoid a complete water shutdown, residents should turn their water off at the customer shut off valve and drain pipes by opening faucets inside the home, he says. This will prevent pipes from bursting and allow the town’s water pumps to catch up with the demand.

Customer shutoff valves are located 6 - 12 inches closer to the residence from the water meters.

Once the water supply reaches an acceptable level this advisory will be lifted by Town Officials, the release states.
