Last Ascension Parish boil water orders lifted

Staff reports

Ascension Parish water orders were lifted Saturday for the remaining areas of Ascension Parish, including the communities of Darrow on the east bank and Modeste, McCall and Smoke Bend on the west bank, that were under the order week.

The orders were put in place in the wake of extremely cold weather affecting water quality of the systems in those areas.

Darrow gets its water supply from St. James Parish. Modeste, McCall and Smoke Bend get their water from Assumption Parish.

Thursday, a boil water order for Donaldsonville was lifted after the water supply there was affected by the loss of power by the city’s water company.
