Boil order issued for some in St. Gabriel
ST. GABRIEL - People living along Bayou Paul Lane in St. Gabriel were cautioned to boil their water after a water line was broken in the area Monday.
Baton Rouge Water Works said customers in that area should boil any water before consumption. That includes before making ice, brushing teeth, food preparation or rinsing food.
Water should be brought to a rolling boil for one full minute in a clean container, and you can remove the flat taste from boiled water by adding a pinch of salt per quart.
The boil advisory is in effect for the next 48 hours or until the Department of Health and Hospitals tests samples from the line and determines the water is safe.
