Water will be shut-off followed by a boil order in Madisonville
From St. Tammany Parish Government


Tchefuncte Parc Subdivision in Madisonville

Faubourg Coquille Water System

On Wednesday (today) beginning at 9:00 AM, Tammany Utilities (TU) will be turning the water off to accommodate the construction crew working on the Tchefuncte Parc bridge. Service will be restored by 5 PM today.

Once water service is restored, out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with Department of Health and Hospital regulations, a precautionary BOIL ADVISORY will be in place for the customers identified above. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by Tammany Utilities. It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or 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.
