originally posted on November 30, 2016


The town of Church Point announces that St. Jude Street will be under a boil advisory as a result of a broken main.

The whole street is under the advisory, but it is the only street affected, officials say.

Until the advisory is lifted, residents are advised to boil water in a clean container for one full minute prior to drinking, cooking or brushing your teeth with the water. It also applies to water given to pets or animals to drink.

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.
