Residents are asked to take the following steps for the next 24 hours to help reduce demand pressure put on the water system during the cold weather.

  • Turn of all taps that you had running in order to prevent pipes from freezing.
  • If you have broken pipes, shut off the water supply until they are fixed. If you have the ability to isolate the leak by turning off a valve, do so. If not the shut off the water supply at the shut off valve on the customer side of the water meter. If your home doesn’t have a shutoff valve call Public Works at 337-394-2237 and a technician will be dispatched to shut it off at the meter.
  • Do not use your dishwasher or washing machine.

These measures are required to allow the water system pumps to catch up and replenish the city’s water storage towers.”
