Boil water advisory in effect for area near Donaldsonville

A boil water advisory is in effect until further notice for a small portion of Ascension Parish’s west bank near Donaldsonville, according to a parish spokesperson.

The advisory is for Peoples Water Company customers along Hwy. 1 south of Wal-Mart Street to the Assumption Parish line. The problem stems from a water main break in the area.

A boil water advisory means water should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute before being consumed.
