Boil Water Advisory remains in place for all LaPlace water customers

LAPLACE —  Water pressure is slowly being restored to LaPlace as a result of a substantial water leak that crews worked through the night Wednesday to repair.

A Boil Water Advisory remains in place for all LaPlace water customers until notified otherwise.

It is recommended all consumers in LaPlace disinfect their water before eating or drinking, brushing teeth or using it for food preparation by boiling water for a full minute in a clean container.

The one-minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.

The Utilities Department will lift the Boil Water Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health that the water samples collected from Water District #3 are safe.

“We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation,” a Parish release said.
