UPDATE, 8/2/23, 7:34 P.M.: Coteau Water will shut down operations between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Wednesday night, August 2, and Thursday night, August 3. 

This is to allow the replenishment of the storage tanks while also enabling contractors to install a new 12″ water line inside the plant to help increase flow. A boil advisory will be issued after this is complete, for precaution, and will notify you when advisory is lifted. ​

Waterworks District No. 3 will work diligently to improve the services.

NEW IBERIA, La. (KLFY) — Residents and businesses served by Waterworks District No. 3 may notice reduced water pressure due to low water levels in its storage tanks, according to Parish President M. Larry Richard.

“We are trying to build storage in our tanks without issuing overnight outages,” Richard said. “We believe we can achieve this with our new control panel by adjusting outgoing flow intermittently. You may experience low water pressure from time to time in the next few days.”

Richard attributes the low water storage to the recent heat wave and drought.

“We need your help to conserve water in every way possible and be mindful of usage moving forward,” Richard said. “Please help by not watering lawns, washing cars, etc.”
