According to officials in St. Martinville, they will need to shut off water to the city tonight as there are some repairs that must be completed.

Adam Touchet, with the St. Martinville Police Department, says that water will be shut off starting at 10 o'clock tonight.

As far as how long the water will be off, that is not known. Touchet says city contractors say it will take as long as needed until they are able to complete the repairs.

Once the water is turned back on, the city of St. Martinville will be under a boil advisory until the water is deemed safe.

If you have concerns or questions about the project this night, you should contact the St. Martinville Public Works Department at 337-394-2237.

City officials ask for the public's patience while the fix happens.
