PREP TO SAVE WATER SUPPLY
If you are a Cameron Parish Waterworks District No. 10 customer and do not live locally or if you plan to evacuate, cut the water off using YOUR shut off valve in your water meter box. Call the office at 337-569-2110 or email email@example.com if there is an issue with this.
Cattle troughs, docks, outdoor showers, irrigation systems and barns/shops - DO NOT LEAVE WATER ON! Historically, leaks in these types of plumbing have been the source of high usage following damaging winds, downed trees, and/or excessive flooding. (We do not offer an adjustment for high usage due to inclement weather where it could have been prevented by cutting off the supply in advance. More importantly, leaks contribute to depleting the storage and elevated tanks.)
Cameron Parish Waterworks District No. 10 does have generated power at the well site and storage facilities. The storage tanks and the Johnson Bayou elevated tank will be full of water. Because of that, there will be water supply once the water system is evaluated for damages and the all clear is given to restore water service unless one of the following occurs:
- Catastrophic damage to the well site or storage/treatment facilities.
- Damages to either Cameron Parish Waterworks District No. 10 or customers' water lines are so extensive that we cannot pump more than the system is losing. (Before and during any storm, conserve water to help keep the tanks full. Following a storm, continue to conserve water until all damage has been assessed not only to Cameron Parish Waterworks District No. 10's infrastructure, but to customers' water lines.
Cameron Parish Waterworks District No. 10's staff will be keeping a very close eye on the situation. We must emphasize that you should call us if you need assistance to turning off your water. If you have concerns about a neighbor, let us know and we'll try to contact them, especially if they live on a waterfront property and this is not their primary residence.
Upon returning, Please contact the office at (337) 569-2110 if you see a water leak.
We will post updates as we receive them. Be safe.
