Bossier City, LA — UPDATE: This boil advisory that was issued on Tuesday was rescinded today after tests on water samples came back negative for contaminants.
Original Story: A water main break this morning has the City of Bossier City issuing a boil advisory for residents in the Central Park neighborhood. The advisory encompasses an area north of Central Park Drive, south of Southview Drive east of Rodney Street, and west of Bonn Street. Central Park Elementary School is included in the advisory and has already been notified.\
The advisory is being issued due to the water pressure in the affected area dropping below state required levels while city crews worked to repair the broken water main which occurred early this morning along Central Park Drive. Due to state regulations whenever a boil advisory is issued it must be made public by advising local news media.
The advisory is a precautionary measure and recommends those in the affected area to voluntarily boil their water before consuming it until the health department can test the water. The advisory pertains only to water used for consumption. Again the advisory is only a\ precautionary measure. This is a boil advisory, not a boil order.
The city will notify the media when the advisory is lifted.
