UPDATE: This boil advisory was rescinded today after tests on water samples came back negative for contaminants.
The City of Bossier City has issued a water boil advisory for a small area of Bossier City. The advisory includes businesses along and adjacent to Doctors Drive and Landry Drive.
Utility construction on Shed Road will require turning down a valve on a water main.
The work is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. today and should take about four hours to complete. Customers in the affected area will have low water pressure during this time thus the need for the water boil advisory.
The advisory is a precautionary measure and recommends those in the affected area to boil their water for one minute before consuming it until the advisory is rescinded. The advisory pertains only to water used for consumption. Again the advisory is a precautionary measure and not a boil order.
The city will notify the media when the advisory is rescinded.
