PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER
PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER ADVISORY PWSID1103002
This Advisory is due to an electrical issue at the well that prevented the tower from automatically refilling. The issue is being corrected and the water is back on line. This Precautionary Boil Water Advisory is necessary because of the drop in pressure.
This Advisory will effect the entire Town of Abita Springs. The estimated time for this advisory is 24 to 36 hours to allow for testing to occur. You are advised to boil water for consumption for one (1) full minute after it has been brought to a rolling boil.
This Advisory is Precautionary only. We will get samples to the lab first thing this morning and hope to get them back within 24 hours.
We have a monitoring system being installed on the well and tower that will automatically notify of drops in pressure. This monitoring system will help prevent these types of issues in the future by notifying public works immediately upon a drop in pressure.
We apologize for any inconvenience and will update as soon as new info is received.
Town of Abita Springs Mayor Daniel Curtis
