Boil Water Advisories

A boil advisory for areas in the town of Clinton has been lifted, according to the city officials.

It was lifted Wednesday morning.

The advisory was announced Monday after officials said there was a break in the line on Jackosn Street under the bridge. The line feeds all of Rileyville, the Pretty Creek subdivision, and all residents in that area, according to city officials. 

Officials said the water produced by the water supply system had a possibility of containing microbiological qualities.

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.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
