VERMILION PARISH, La. - Pecan Island Water Works District 3 will be turning off water to all residents Wednesday morning.

The water will be turned off around 7 or 8 am, according to an official at the water company.

Residents should be prepared to be without water for a couple days.

The official said the reason for the shut down is to prevent damage to the water company. The water was left on during Hurricane Rita and a busted pipe caused by the storm burnt the motor at Water Works District 3.
