WATER SERVICE INTERRUPTION & PRECAUTIONARY BOIL ADVISORY
Portions of Cedarwood, Elmwood, Wilkerson, America, Caroline, Lafayette, Dupard, Webster, and Foucher Streets in Tanglewood Subdivision
Briarwood Terrace Water System (PWS 1103079)
On Wednesday, March 30, 2016, beginning at 9 AM, Tammany Utilities (TU) will be replacing an 8” water valve located at the intersection of Elmwood Street and Cedarwood Street in Mandeville. The work will require that the water be turned off to Tammany Utilities water customers located within the highlighted area shown in the image below. Water service will be restored by 5 PM Wednesday, March 30, 2016.
Once water service is restored, out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with Department of Health and Hospital regulations, a precautionary BOIL ADVISORY will be in place for the customers identified above. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by Tammany Utilities.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 system have shown the water to be safe. We anticipate that the earliest the BOIL ADVISORY will be rescinded will be Friday, April 1st.
Customers affected by this advisory will be advised when it is rescinded by hand delivered notices and notices on the Parish Government’s social media sites. If you have any questions, please call Tammany Utilities at (985) 276-6400.
