Iberia Parish Asking Residents NOT to Let Faucets Drip Overnight

ATTENTION ALL CUSTOMERS OF WATERWORKS DISTRICT #3 OF IBERIA PARISH (Coteau Waterworks)

Water Storage Levels at Waterworks District #3 of Iberia Parish are at CRITICALLY LOW LEVELS.

Faucets running over night are putting an extreme demand on the water system and its ability to provide potable water to our service area.

Continuing this action will cause the water district to shut down until sufficient storage is available to adequately supply our service area.

Waterworks District #3 of Iberia Parish is asking all it’s customers to NOT allow faucets to drip overnight to prevent water pipes from freezing.

Please use alternate methods such as:

1. DRAIN PIPES BEFORE GOING TO BED

2. INSULATE ALL PIPES EXPOSED TO THE WEATHER

3. OPEN CABINET DOORS IN HOMES TO ALLOW HEAT TO REACH INTERIOR PIPES

Your bill will indicate if you are served by Waterworks District #3. This district’s service area is generally described as the area West of Old Spanish Trail, South of Captain Cade Road, North of Jefferson Island Road, and East of Guillotte Road.
