The Town of Amite Water System has issued a Temporary Precautionary Boil Advisory for a limited area of the system

The area affected is as follows:

                                                        N. Duncan Avenue from Lovers Lane north to

Foulks Lane and includes Old Reid Road

due to a break in the line.

 The break in the line has been corrected and water service has been restored.  Because of the situation, the water produced by our water supply system is of questionable microbiological quality. Therefore, as a precaution, the Town of Amite Water System is issuing a BOIL ADVISORY effective immediately for a limited area of the system. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by the Water System.

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. The Water System will rescind this Boil Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals - Office of Public Health that additional water samples collected from our water supply system have shown our water to be safe.  Any further questions please contact, Town of Amite Water System at 985-748-8761.
