The Town of Baldwin has experienced problems with our water supply system due to a broken water main. The water has been restored.
Therefore, as a precaution, the Town of Baldwin is issuing a BOIL ADVISORY effective immediately for the following areas:
- The Town of Baldwin
This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by the Town of Baldwin.
It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, rinsing of food or using it for food preparation by following the procedure below:
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 pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.)
Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.
The Town of Baldwin will rescind this Boil Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals – Office of Public Health that additional water samples collected from our water supply system have shown our water to be safe.
