Posted at 12:29 PM, Aug 18, 2022

The mayor of Opelousas announced the boil advisory issued on Marguerite and Dunbar Streets has been rescinded.

A major water line has broke in Opelousas, leaving some residents and businesses with brown water.

All customers and addresses on Marquerite Street and any customers who experienced low water pressure on Dunbar Street were issued a boil advisory.

These were the only two streets that the boil advisory impacted.

Officials said, due to the size of the water line, a significant portion of the community might experience issues as the valves and water lines were being repaired.
