UPDATE: The water boil advisory mentioned below was lifted today by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals after tests on water samples came back negative for contaminants. A no time was there evidence of water contamination in the area.
(Original news release below issued October 30, 2016)
The City of Bossier City has issued a boil advisory for a portion of Bossier Parish that receives water from the city. The advisory is for residents and businesses served by the City of Bossier water system north of Kingston Road along Airline Drive and east of Airline Drive along Swan Lake Road.
The advisory is being issued due to a temporary disruption of water service in that area as a result of construction crews accidently damaging a water line Saturday night at the intersection of Airline Drive and Kingston Road.
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and recommends those in the affected area to boil their water for one minute before consuming it until the advisory is rescinded.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The city will notify the media when the advisory is rescinded.
