UPDATE: The boil advisory has been lifted. 

BAYOU BLUE, La. – Residents along Bayou Blue and Bayou Lafourche are under a boil water advisory.

The warning was issued at 8 a.m. on January 3 and covers all areas along Highway 182 west of Bayou Lafourche and Bayou Blue, according to Lafourche Parish Water District No.1.

All residents are advised to boil water for at least one minute in a clean container and let it cool before drinking it, making ice, brushing teeth, or using the water for food preparation, including in fountain drinks.

The cold weather caused a drop in water pressure, which led to the advisory, according to the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office.

All residents are asked to conserve water.
