Posted at 10:22 AM, Jan 21, 2021

ST. MARY PARISH, La. - The City of Franklin has issued a boil water advisory until further notice due to a water main break.

It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), 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.)

The Franklin Water System will rescind this boil advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health.
