"On June 20, 2017 Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health tested our public water system for Naegleria Fowleri, brain eating amoeba. I was just informed that test results showed the amoeba present in our ACR-182, last fire hydrant on Island Road.

This is the same location that tested positive two years ago, August 2015. We would caution the public to refrain from allowing water to enter their nasal passages. The water is safe to drink.

We changed disinfectants on June 12, 2017, to a free chlorine, and will remain on free chlorine until September 1, 2017. We are available to answer any questions that you might have. The water remains safe to drink!"

Hurricane Season
Wednesday, May 31, 2017 9:50 A.M.

With hurricane season upon us, it is important to remember, that during a major storm event your Water Service can be disrupted. If an evacuation is mandatory, we encourage everyone to take heed to the warning for everyone's safety. But if you can't evacuate, we ask that you store water for the possibility that your water service may be knocked out by high winds that will disrupt power at the Water Plant, and down trees that will break water lines. We make efforts to minimize the impact of such events.

Also remember once the water pressure is restored after a hurricane, that the drinking water may still not be safe to drink. This is because if water pressure drops very low, it is recommended that the water be tested first. Your Water Department will notify the public when normal water use is permitted.

We recommend that you use bottled water for drinking or cooking purposes only. If you are unable to obtain bottled water for drinking or cooking, you can treat the water yourself. You can get the information on how to treat water from your local Health Department or information may be available on www.epa.gov. Because you may not have water pressure to flush toilets, we recommend that you fill a tub of water before the storm. This water can be used to help flush your toilets by taking a bucket full and dumping it in. This will normally make the toilet flush.

If it is necessary for you to stay during a major hurricane, which we do not recommend, we hope you will monitor all news reports and take all precautions and warnings seriously. We hope this information will better prepare you during the hurricane season.
