Natchitoches lifts boil order, but water restrictions remain in place | Environment
The City of Natchitoches has lifted a city-wide boil order. While residents may see increased water pressure, service conditions may continue to fluctuate across the system and it is possible that customers could see some service variations until the entire situation stabilizes.
City of Natchitoches Utility Director Bryan Wimberly recommends that citizens run water for approximately five minutes before drinking and to throw out leftover ice cubes. Customers are advised not to consume water that is discolored.
While the boil order has been lifted, the city’s mandatory water restriction remains.
Level 3: Mandatory: Odd-numbered addresses may use water outdoors only on Sundays. Even-numbered or unnumbered addresses and golf courses may use water outdoors on Saturdays. No outdoor water use is allowed on scheduled days between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight). All non-essential outdoor water use is banned. To ensure compliance, police will patrol neighborhoods. Warning tickets will be issued for the first offense; repeated offenses may face the possibility of water services being suspended.
