Lafayette, LA (February 17, 2021) - Residents and businesses in the areas north of I-10, south of Gendarme Road, west of Wilderness Trail and east of Janvier Road are still under a Boil Water Advisory.

Customers in the affected area need to vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute prior to drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, using it for food prep or rinsing food. The one minute starts after water has been brought to a rolling boil.

Water pressure in this area is still below the pressure thresholds due to customer usage and weather-related damage. We are asking all residential and business customers to assess their water lines for any leaks or breaks and to continue water conservation measures.

Do not drip lines
Check water lines around your area
Report any water pooling or flooding in your neighborhood or other areas to LUS at (337) 291-5700

To ensure water safety and quality, the advisory will remain in effect until water pressure is normalized and collected water samples are cleared by the Louisiana Department of Health-Office of Public Health.
