From the Bossier Parish Police Jury:
A boil advisory covering Consolidated Waterworks/Sewerage District 1 has been issued effective immediately, according to Bossier Parish Director of Public Utilities Larry Landry.
Water in the district reportedly was shut off to repair a main break caused by a boring contractor. The boil advisory will remain in effect until rescinded by the water system on the recommendation from the state Department of Health and Hospitals.
Water service was discontinued in the east part of Dogwood subdivision north of Dogwood Trail on Timberwood Dr. and Shadow Wood Dr. and includes: Shadow Bend Dr., Woodlake Dr., Woodlake Circle, Foxwood Lane, Woodstock Dr., Holly Ridge Dr., Watchwood Dr., Fox Run Circle, Wildbriar Circle and portions of Ginger Dr. and Eliga Dr.
Water customers in the listed areas should disinfect their water before consuming it, making ice, brushing teeth or using it for food preparation. Water should be disinfected by:
Boiling water for one full minute in a clean container. The minute begins after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. Any flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one clean container to another or by adding a pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.
Customers will be notified when the boil advisory has been lifted.
