This is a message from St. John Parish. The Utilities Department will be administering emergency water line repairs and all water customers from Lancelot to Surrey will experience little to no water pressure for 4 to 6 hours while repairs are made. As a precaution, Water District #3 in coordination with the Louisiana Department of Health has issued a Boil Water Advisory for all water customers who lost water pressure. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until lifted by the St. John Utilities Department. The Utilities Department will lift the Boil Water Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and that the water samples collected from Water District #3 are safe. It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it or using it for food preparation by boiling water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise. Thank you for your patience.
