Water Works District 3 in Port Barre has issued a boil advisory for all Routes 01-04 due to low water pressure.

The boil order is to remain in effect until rescinded.

It is recommended that consumers disinfect their water before consuming it, making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:

Boil water for one full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. (The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.)
