LAFOURCHE PARISH, La. (WVUE) - A precautionary boil water advisory was issued for parts of Lafourche Parish after a power failure at the Lafourche Parish Water District’s South Treatment Plant caused pressure to briefly drop below acceptable levels Saturday (Jan. 5).
The pressure drop was recorded between Lockport and Valentine, according to the advisory. All customers on both Hwy 1 and Hwy 308 from the South Coast Gas office in Raceland to Port Fourchon are asked to boil their water for one full minute at a rolling boil before using.
This includes all customers in Des Allemands and Gheens.
