Calcasieu Parish Waterworks District 5 in Lake Charles Issues Boil Advisory Due to Water Main Break June 3, 2019

Update: This boil advisory was lifted June 5, 2019

June 3, 2019, at 2:20, the Calcasieu Parish Waterworks District No. 5 of Wards 3 and 8 issued a boil advisory, effective immediately, for Broad Street from Goodman Road / Laurel, west to Bunker Road and all streets north of Broad, including Hackberry, Jones, and Oak streets. Streets on the south side are not affected.

The reason for the advisory is a water main break in the area. It is recommended that all residents in the affected area disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation by boiling water for one 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.

The water district will rescind this boil advisory once it’s given the all clear from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals’ Office of Public Health.
