Briarwood Terrace Water System (PWS#1103079)
Today, June 16, 2022, a 4” water main was damaged by a contractor causing a pressure loss in the distribution system. The Department of Utilities turned off service in order to complete the water line repairs. Out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with Louisiana Department of Health regulations, the customers in the affected area, as shown in the image above, will be under a precautionary Boil Advisory.
This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by the Department of Utilities.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.
The Department of Utilities will rescind this BOIL ADVISORY upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health that additional water samples collected from our system have shown the water to be safe.
Customers affected by this advisory will be notified when it is rescinded by signs throughout the area, an automated phone call and notice posted on the St. Tammany Parish website. If you have any questions, please call the Department of Utilities at (985) 276-6400.
