Lafayette Utilities System has issued a Boil Water Advisory for all residents and businesses on the east side of Kaliste Saloom Road from Miguel Drive to Rue Louis XIV, effective immediately.
Authorities say an error by private a contractor resulted in the accidental puncture of a major LUS water line, with water pressure dropping significantly this afternoon. While nearly all customers in this area have had their water services restored, as a precaution, LUS is recommending a Boil Water Advisory for the designated area.
Customers in the affected area need to vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute prior to drinking or cooking.
This advisory is in effect until further notice.
