The Utilities Department in coordination with the Louisiana Department of Health has issued a Boil Water Advisory for Reserve, Garyville & Mt. Airy as a result of the water system pressure dropping below 20 PSI due to several water leaks associated with the Freeze.
It is recommended that all water customers in Reserve, Garyville & Mt. Airy boil their water for one full minute before consuming it or using it for food preparation until further notice. This Boil Water Advisory is to remain in effect until lifted by the Louisiana Department of Health, estimated to be within 48 hours.
**There is no Boil Water Advisory in place for LaPlace or the West Bank at this time (this could change)  however all residents Parishwide are asked to conserve water.**
Anyone that observes water main breaks (water spilling into the street or shooting up in the air) is asked to report it to the Utilities Department at 985-651-6800 during normal business hours and to 911 after hours.
