Boil advisory issued for the Town of Kentwood

KENTWOOD, LA (WAFB) -

The Town of Kentwood Water Department has issued a boil water advisory until further notice. 

The advisory effects residents west of I-55. 

According to officials, they believe that the water is "of questionable microbiological quality" due to a failed well casting.

Residents are being asked to boil their water before consuming it, making ice, brushing their teeth or using it to cook or clean food. 

The boil advisory will be rescinded once officials are notified by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals Office of Public Health that the water is safe again.
