FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Message from Mayor Regarding Conserving Water
To the citizens of Opelousas,
We are encouraged by a slight increase in our city water reserve; however, we are far from out of the woods. The city’s administration is still asking our water customers to please conserve water and reduce water usage. We are aware that temperatures will be lower this evening; however, we must continue to be diligent and stay the course of water conservation.
Again, we ask everyone not to drip or run their faucets. We are still experiencing low pressures throughout the city. We are receiving a high volume of calls about more leaks, which directly impacts the water pressure in the city. I want to thank Opelousas citizens for listening and responding in the positive manner they have done.
God bless and take care,
