Scheduled Water Main Repair will Necessitate Service Interruption and Precautionary Boil Advisory
Faubourg Water System (PWS 1103149)
If weather permits, Tammany Utilities (TU) will begin maintenance work to repair a leaking water main on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. Water service will be temporarily interrupted beginning at 9 a.m. in the following areas: Tuscany West Subdivision, Northpointe Business Park, Ashland Oaks Business Park, RTD Beverage, and 71313 and 71325 Highway 1077, in the Covington area. Once water service is restored, a Precautionary Boil Advisory will be in place, in accordance with Louisiana Department of Health regulations.
The Boil Advisory will remain in effect until rescinded by Tammany Utilities. It is recommended that residents disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), water for making ice, water for brushing teeth, and before using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods, by the following means:
Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. (The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.)
Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.
Tammany Utilities will rescind this Boil Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health that additional water samples collected from our system have shown the water to be safe.
Customers affected by this advisory will be advised when it is rescinded by an automated phone call, signs throughout the affected area, and notices on the Parish Government’s web and social media sites. If you have any questions, please call Tammany Utilities at (985) 276-6400.
