4:20 p.m. LA-70 Waterline Break

There is a waterline break along Highway 70 near the Texas Brine road. Assumption Parish Waterworks is aware of the situation and will start performing repairs at 8:00 tomorrow morning. We’re uncertain at this time if any outages will occur due to this incident; however, APWW has assured they will do their best to limit the length of time of any outage that might occur as well as repair the issue as quickly as possible.

We strongly encourage residents along Highway 70 and in the Pierre Part community to conserve water accordingly.

If any additional information becomes available, it will be posted here.
