Boil advisory: East Central Bossier Water System

A boil advisory effective immediately has been issued for the East Central Bossier Water System, according to Director of Public Utilities Larry Landry.
Areas impacted by the boil order include from Seven Pines Rd. to Butler Hill Rd. on LA Hwy. 160, Ward Line Rd., Derbe Ln., Merrill Ln., Leslie Rd., Butler Hill Rd., Scarborough Ln. and Rd., Elite Ln., and Seven Pines Rd. Also included is Thornton Rd.
An outage was planned to install a valve and to replace the main and all roots. Work is expected to take approximately five to six hours.
During the boil order, consumers in the area should disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks, making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods) until this boil advisory is rescinded by the following means:
• Boil water for one 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 water prior to consumption until otherwise advised.
