VILLE PLATTE, La.- UPDATE: The boil advisory for East Side Water System has now been rescinded.
The water pressure within the system has been restored above the minimum set by the Louisiana Administrative Code-Sanitary Code. As well as samples taken by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals-the Office of Public Health have been determined negative for the coliform bacteria.
ORIGINAL: Due to problems being experienced with the water supply system, the whole East Side Water System in Ville Platte will be under a boil advisory.
The problems cause the water produced by the water system to be questionable of microbiological quality.
The boil advisory is effective immediately and will be rescinded once the East Side Water System says it’s safe again to consume.
It is recommended that all customers disinfect their water (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods. Customers can disinfect the water by boiling it for one full minute.
