LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — Severe water system challenges continue to affect north and south Louisiana, but Lake Charles Mayor Nic Hunter is hopeful water pressure should be restored to the majority of his city by Sunday. Hunter said every available city employee is currently scouring the city to cut off water to empty structures. Employees from all departments are being trained in how to do this to resolve the situation more quickly. Utilities Director for Lake Charles Keith Heise said more than 750 leaks since Thursday have been found and capped. Gov. John Bel Edwards scheduled a 2 p.m. media briefing Saturday at LSU Health Shreveport to discuss the state’s continued response to the winter conditions.
