Water Shortages


December 24, 2022 at 4:58:27 PM CST

The Sheriff’s office received updates from several water systems across the Parish. Generally, all water systems are in working order but can’t keep up with demand.

As the temperatures have risen above freezing today lines that were broken are beginning to leak at residences. That issue is compounded by those who are still dripping their water.

Water Systems are asking that if you have a leak to cut your water off at the meter. Several systems are being forced to shut off customer supply until holding tanks can refill. To sum it up, the system is bleeding out at the customer’s end.

Service restoration time is difficult to pinpoint as that requires customers to reduce the drain on the system.

This information was provided to our office to share with the public. Any concerns or questions should be directed to your utility provider.
