Lafayette, LA (February 16, 2022) - Lafayette Utilities System (LUS) has issued a Boil Water Advisory for residents and businesses in the areas north of I-10, south of Gendarme Road, west of Wilderness Trail and east of Janvier Road.

An increase in customer usage due to weather, water pressure has dropped significantly in this area.

As a precaution, customers in the affected area need to vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute prior to drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, using it for food prep or rinsing food. The one minute starts after water has been brought to a rolling boil.

If you suspect a leak, try to identify where the leak is and turn the water off at the hand cutoff. The hand cutoff is usually located 12-24” behind the meter going toward the home. If the shut off valve is not accessible, please contact LUS at (337) 291-5700.

To ensure water safety and quality, the advisory will remain in effect until collected water samples are cleared by the Louisiana Department of Health-Office of Public Health.
