A boil water advisory has been lifted after a water main broke Wednesday on Hwy 447. The break caused a loss of pressure in the affected area.

The Louisiana Department of Health has tested water samples and says the water is now safe for consumption.

According to the advisory:

  • Customers in the affected area are encouraged to treat all water for drinking or culinary purposes by boiling water for one minute in a clean container. The one-minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a bottle or pouring it from one container to another.
