DeSoto Parish Waterworks District #1 (DPWD#1) has issued a parish-wide boil advisory. Water storage tanks are depleted system-wide due to power outages and system leaks. Other water systems in the parish are experiencing similar problems especially those who use DPWD#1 as a back-up water supply.
DPWD#1 crews are working diligently to restore service as soon as possible. However, some areas of the parish, especially the northern parts, will not
be restored before Friday at the earliest. Contact the water district office at 318-872-0004 for additional information.
