Water main break leads to boil advisory for parts of Sulphur

Published 5:04 pm Monday, May 9, 2022

Due to a water main break water pressure in certain areas may dip below the required levels. The City of Sulphur is issuing a boil advisory for the affected areas of Beglis Parkway to Prater Road and E. Burton Street South to Interstate. 

If you were without water in this area, run faucets until water runs clear then take precaution and boil water before consumption. 

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 that is boiled). 

The City of Sulphur will notify the affected areas once clear samples have been received from the State Laboratory.
