Boil Water Advisories

(WAFB) -

The boil advisory for the Clinton Water System has been lifted.

Officials said it was put in place after a break in the line that feeds the fire hydrant at the corner of St. Helena Street and LA 67, producing "questionable microbiological quality."

The water is now safe to drink.

IF YOU ARE UNDER A BOIL ADVISORY: 

Residents under an advisory should boil their water before drinking it, cooking, making ice, or brushing their teeth. Boil water for one full minute in a clean container. The minute starts once the water has reached a full, rolling boil.

The flat taste of the water can be removed by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of boiled water.

Advisories will be removed from this list once they are lifted by officials, which is typically after water samples have been tested by the Louisiana Department of Health.
