City of Rayne posts boil advisory due to loss of water pressure

The City of Rayne is reporting a loss of water pressure due to water line repairs within the water supply system.
Because of those problems, the water produced by the water supply system is of questionable microbiological quality according to city officials.
Therefore, as a precaution, the City of Rayne Water System is issuing a boil advisory effective immediately for Pearl ,Comeaux, Patricia and Theo Streets.
This boil advisory is to remain in effect until rescinded by the City of Rayne Water System.
It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), 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.)
Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.
The City of Rayne Water System will rescind this Boil Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health that additional water samples collected from our water supply system have shown our water to be safe.
