Boil Water Advisory 2/11/2019

BOIL ADVISORY
Water System
2/11/2019
For Immediate Release
The Jeanerette Water System has experienced problems with our water supply system.
Replacement of a hydrant at Church and Druilnet caused a loss of pressure. Because of these problems, the water produced by our water supply system is of questionable
microbiological quality.
Therefore, as a precaution, the Water System is issuing a BOIL ADVISORY
effective immediately. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by the
Water System.
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 Jeanerette Water System 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.
