Water brought to elderly in Ferriday

FERRIDAY — In the midst of more water problems, the Town of Ferriday is offering help to elderly and disabled residents unable to go out and get their water.

Mayor Glen McGlothin said many residents in town are unable to get water for themselves at one of the 14 military water tanks throughout the city, and Ferriday officials are looking to help.

The mayor said anyone who can’t physically go out and get their own drinking water from the tanks can contact City Hall at 318-757-3411.

“If you just call up there we will work out a plan to where we can get you some fresh water,” he said.

McGlothin said the service is only for residents who truly need the help, and that it will be offered until the town receives approval that the boil order advisory is lifted.
