On Friday, July 8, 2022, a temporary disruption of water service is planned for East McNeese Street, between Kirkman Street and Louisiana Avenue, where contractors are currently working on a major drainage improvement project. The shut off is expected to begin at 9 a.m. and last until 3 p.m. The shut off is necessary to allow contractors to reroute a section of the underground water main. 

Affected customers have been notified by the contractor and through the use of door tags. 

Following the restoration of water service, in compliance with Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) regulations, a temporary precautionary boil water advisory will be put in place for customers in the impacted area.

The boil water advisory will likely last for about 24 hours. The City of Lake Charles Water Division will rescind the boil advisory upon notification from LDH that water samples collected and submitted for testing have met their water quality and safety requirements.

It is recommended that affected consumers disinfect their water before consuming it, including making ice, brushing teeth, using for food preparation or rinsing foods, by boiling the water for one full minute in a clean container. The recommended one minute starts following the water being brought to a rolling boil. This advisory will not affect showering or bathing.

For more information or questions regarding individual water services in this impacted area, call 337-491-1487.
