On Tuesday, August 16, 2022, a temporary disruption of water service is planned for several streets in the area of West Oak Lane where contractors are currently working on a drainage project. The shut off is expected to begin at 8:15 a.m. and is expected to last until 1 p.m. on Tuesday, August 16, 2022. The shut off is necessary to allow contractors to complete a water line relocation and the necessary tie-ins. 

A map of the affected area appears below.

Contractors will make every attempt to notify affected customers through the use of door hangers.

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 within the affected area.

The boil water advisory will likely last for about 24 hours. The City of Lake Charles 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.
