TANGIPAHOA PARISH, La. (WAFB) - Several residents living near Independence in Tangipahoa Parish are under a boil water advisory until further notice.

The advisory applies to neighbors living on both sides of Highway 51 between Brickyard Road and Bickman Chapel Road. According to a water company spokesperson, a linebreak on Highway 51 has caused a loss of pressure to the system.

Residents should bring water to a vigorous boil for at least two minutes. Once the boil water advisory is lifted, officials will send out a notification.

Anyone with questions should contact the water company at 1 (225) 952-7697.
