If you’re moving to New Iberia but don’t have running water, you need to get water service from LAWCO – New Iberia Water System. You can sign up online and begin service within two business days. After you’ve completed your move, turn off the water service.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the Louisiana Water Company – New Iberia Water System must conduct tests to monitor the quality of the water that it distributes to its customers. The company has to distribute a Consumer Confidence Water Quality Report that shows the level of lead in drinking water. The reports are reviewed and made publicly available by WaterZen, an organization that promotes public health and safety. The lead levels in drinking water in certain parts of the United States is too high, and they are a concern for public health.
