Erath, Louisiana, is a residential community of approximately 2,100 residents located in Vermilion Parish, about 7 miles east of Abbeville and 26 miles south of Lafayette, Louisiana.

Founded in 1899, we are a small community rich in Acadian culture. We take pride in our community and hold dear our family.

Visit us during our Fourth of July Celebration, where we celebrate the birth of our nation. Our celebration is one of the biggest and best in the area, and was featured on Good Morning, America as "one of most interesting events in America."

The Boil Water Advisory has been lifted. The second water samples have been tested and all have passed. The Department of Health and Hospitals has lifted the Boil Water Advisory. The water in Erath can once again be used for consumption and cooking without boiling it first.

I would like to thank all the residents of Erath for your patience and understanding over the past few days. I know that the loss of water and the boil water advisory were a great inconvenience, and I again thank you for you patience.
