Boil Advisory for Rayne


The City of Rayne has experienced a loss of water pressure due to water line repairs within the water supply system.

Because of these problems, the water produced by the supply system is of questionable microbiological quality.

As a precaution, the City of Rayne Water System is issuing a BOIL ADVISORY effective immediately for East E, F, & G Streets from Margaret Street east to dead end.

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.)
