Boil Water Advisory

Calcasieu Waterworks District No. 5 of Wards 3 and 8 has issued a boil order for a portion of the district due to a water main break.

The affected areas include E. Nick Claire Lane from Kade Daniel to E. Jake Oliver Lane and E. Jake Oliver addresses higher than 5532.

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.
