REASCINDED JANUARY 6, 2018
PRECAUTIONARY BOIL ADVISORY
Cross Gates, The Bluffs, The Landings, Turtle Creek,
Willow Wood and Autumn Lakes Subdivisions
Cross Gates Water System (PWS 1103053)
Sometime on January 4, 2018, the tubing supplying the chlorine disinfection at the Willow Wood well failed causing the chlorine concentration in the supplied water to fall below the state mandated levels in some portions of the Cross Gates Water System. The failure of this tubing was discovered on January 5th and repaired allowing normal disinfection to resume. Out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with Louisiana Department of Health regulations, a precautionary boil advisory is in place for Tammany Utilities (TU) customers in Cross Gates, The Bluffs, The Landings, Turtle Creek, Willow Wood, and Autumn Lakes Subdivisions.
This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by Tammany Utilities. 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 (1) 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.)
Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.
Tammany Utilities will rescind this Boil 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 our water to be safe.
Customers affected by this advisory will be advised when it is rescinded by an automated phone call and notices on the Parish Government’s website and social media sites. If you have any questions, please call Tammany Utilities at (985) 276-6400.
