LOUISIANA WATER CO MPANY 448 East Main Street New Iberia, Louisiana 70560 IMPORTANT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT New Iberia - Louisiana Water Company (LAWCO) in New Iberia, Louisiana is issuing a Boil Water Advisory (BWA) effective immediately at the recommendation of the OPH-DHH for the following critical health care facilities in Iberia Parish;

Iberia Medical Center, 2315 E Main Street, New Iberia, LA Iberia Medical Center, 600 N Lewis Street, New Iberia, LA

Belle Teche Nursing and Rehab, 1306 W Admiral Doyle, New Iberia, LA Consolata Nursing Home, 2319 E Main Street, New Iberia, LA

New Iberia Manor North, 1803 Jane Street, New Iberia, LA New Iberia Manor South, 600 Bayard Street, New Iberia, LA Fresenius Kidney Center, 609 Rue De Brille, New Iberia, LA Kidney Care, 902A S Lewis Street, New Iberia, LA

Iberia Extended Care of Iberia Medical, 2315 E Main Street, New Iberia, LA Rehab Center of Iberia Medical, 2309-A Main Street E, New Iberia, LA Comprehensive Health, 806 Jefferson Terrace Blvd, New Iberia, LA

This BWA does not mean the water is contaminated, but rather due to low pressures, the water quality is unknown and customers should take appropriate precautions. Once system pressures return to normal, water samples will be collected at normal TCR sample sites in your area and tested to verify the water quality. These tests take approximately 24 hours to complete. Once testing is completed, these facilities will be notified when the BWA has been rescinded.

Under a Boil Water Advisory, it is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using 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 boiled.)

Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.

If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact the LAWCO

customer service office at (337) 365-0002.
