Original Post:

The Consolidated Waterworks/Sewerage District No. 1, Parish of Bossier, experienced problems with its water system Sunday, resulting in the loss of electrical power and a loss of pressure for Dogwood Subdivision.

Because of this, the water produced by the water supply system is of questionable microbiological quality.waterfaucet

Therefore, as a precaution, the Consolidated Waterworks/Sewerage District No. 1, Parish of Bossier,has issued BOIL ADVISORY effective immediately.  This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by the Water System.

It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:

Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container.  The one minute starts after the water has     been brought to a rolling boil.  (The 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 small pinch of salt to each     quart of water that is boiled.)

Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.

The Consolidated Waterworks/Sewerage District No. 1, Parish of Bossier, Water System will rescind this BOIL ADVISORY upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals – Office of Public Health that additional water samples collected from our water supply system have shown our water to be safe.
