St. John the Baptist Parish expects to have the water and wastewater back in service tonight; however, the system is experiencing abnormal conditions. Therefore, it is critical we implement conservation measures in order to maintain water and wastewater services in order to avoid problems in resident’s homes.
When both systems are back in service close all facets that are not needed, use limited water when showering or bathing, use limited toilet paper and avoid numerous flushes when utilizing the restroom.
Residents will be under a boil water advisory when water service is restored as a precautionary measure. Samples of the water will be taken tomorrow and following the 24 hour incubation period,, the sample will be tested. Once results are received, notifications will be sent.
