The entire city of Opelousas is under a boil advisory until further notice, due to a major water leak. City Officials say the exact location of the leak has been determined, and the necessary repairs are being made.

Residents can still bathe and shower, but should be careful not to swallow any water. The elderly, infants and young children should take extra precautions with tap water. Water should also be boiled, then cooled for pets.

Residents are instructed to boil water for one full minute in a clean container. The one-minute boil begins after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.
