Parts of Maurice under boil water advisory

originally posted on August 31, 2016


The Waterworks District No. 1 in Maurcie has experienced problems with thier water supply system due to tying into a new water line.

The following below listed roads will be affected by the boil advisory:

· All of Luther Road

· Aube Drive

· Hwy 343 from Luther to Hwy 696 (Both sides of the Road)

Because of these problems, the water produced by the water supply system is of questionable microbiological quality.

Therefore, as a precaution, the Waterworks District No. 1 Water System is issuing a boil water advisory effective immediately.  This advisory is to remain in effect until rescinded by the Waterworks District No. 1 Water System.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 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 Waterworks Works District No. 1 Water System will rescind the advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals – Office of Public Health that additional water samples collected from our water supply system have shown water to be safe.
