CITY OF YOUNGSVILLE WATER SYSTEM
SOUTH OF CHEMIN METAIRIE PARKWAY AND EAST OF GUILLOT ROAD
The City of Youngsville Water System has experience a broken water main near Chemin Metairie Parkway and Guillot Road. This will affect Sugar Ridge, Chemet Park, Crepe Myrtle, Ogden, Nezpique, and areas south of Chemin Metairie and along Guillot Road. Emergency repairs are currently underway.
Therefore, as a precaution, the City of Youngsville is issuing a BOIL ADVISORY, effective immediately in the areas south of Chemin Metairie Parkway, East of Guillot Road and along Guillot Road, which also includes Sugar Ridge Subdivision, Chemet Park Subdivision, Crepe Myrtle, Ogden and Nezpique.
It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it, making ice, brushing teeth or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:
Boil water for one (1) 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 City of Youngsville Water System will rescind this Boil Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals – Office of Public Health that additional water samples collected from our system have shown our water to be safe.
