Boil Advisory for Town of Leonville Water System

originally posted on January 30, 2017


St. Landry Parish –The Town of Leonville is issuing a boil water advisory for areas of the water supply system. The advisory is effective immediately.

The system stretches from outskirts of Port Barre to Arnaudville and Opelousas.  The areas effected are as listed below:

All residences from 1039 and 2818 Highway 31 between Arnaudville and Leonville
The advisory comes after a 4″ main water line was broken due to contractor drilling through the water line. Officials are working to repair the line and flushing the area.

During a water boil advisory, residents are reminded to 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The advisory will be rescinded once the Leonville Water System receives notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals- Office of Public Health.
