Youngsville residents outraged by running water issues

YOUNGSVILLE, Louisiana (KLFY) — Many Youngsville residents are outraged by the poor quality of their running water.

Customers of Embedded total environmental solutions say this has been happening for too long and something needs to be done about it.

Brady Barry says it’s been years.

“I moved into the neighborhood just over three and a half years ago. The water quality is mediocre at best, even when it is of the best quality it is mediocre.

Barry says he and his neighbors currently have no water in their pipes and don’t know when it will be fixed.

“Now we just don’t have any water and we don’t know when we’re going to get it. They just tell us the well is down and that’s all we know.

TESI customer Brandon Rodrigue says he’s also been fighting the company for years and says he’s fed up.

“Recently, in the neighborhood, we had the case where TESI failed the tests, and they did not inform the residents of the neighborhood for about a month and a half. It was very harmful to everyone, from the elderly to those with immune disorders, as well as infants. They just let it go and acted like it was no big deal, when it’s actually a big deal.

News 10 contacted TESI but could not get a response.

Some TESI workers working on the well said they are actively working to resolve the current issue, but said there is no timeline for when it will be resolved.

Currently, a boil water advisory is in effect until further notice.
