For Immediate Release to Water Systems Customers
The Town of Port Barre has restored pressure within the water supply system above to the minimum required level established by the Louisiana Administrative Code - Sanitary Code. Water samples collected by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals - Office of Public Health have been negative for coliform bacteria. Therefore, the boil advisory released to the areas affected as a precautionary measure is now rescinded. The water is again safe for consumption.

Boil Advisory

January 19, 2019

Pipe has been fixed and the water tower is being filled. It will be quite a while before the pressure is restored to normal as everyone will be using the water. Please be advised that we are officially under a “boil advisory” until LDHH has cleared our samples, which will more than likely be until Tuesday or Wednesday. Thank you.

Water Shut Off & Boil Advisory

January 19, 2019

Water should be restored within the next couple of hours.  We will be under a mandatory boil advisory once it is back on.  We will continue to post updates as we receive them.

Water Shut Off & Boil Advisory

January 19, 2019

Water being shut off immediately due to someone hitting a fire hydrant on Hwy 190.  This shut off effects all customers on the Town of Port Barre's water system, including those customers serviced by Waterworks District No. 3.  Our utility crew is on the scene and we do not know at this time how long the water will be off.  We will post additional news and alerts as they become available.  Once the water is restored to full pressure, all customers will be under a boil advisory as a precautionary measure until further notice.  We apologize for this inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
