The long-awaited new water system is now installed in Maurice.
"The Village of Maurice has put the new water system on line this morning. There are still some adjustments that are required but the water is now being filtered and softened," Mayor Wayne Theriot says. "Over the next week you should experience an increase in the quality of water received. It will take a few days for the unfiltered water to exit the system."
The village has been working on the system for some time, but ran into some delays, courtesy of a busy hurricane season. You can read about that here.
"We know it has been a longer than expected process and we appreciate your understanding that some of the delay was out of our control," the mayor says.
