Boil advisory for customers of Desoto Parish Water Works Dist. 1

Posted: Updated:

DESOTO PARISH, LA (KSLA) – Water works are taking a big hit with the freezing temperatures, forcing a boil advisory for one part of the Ark-La-Tex.

Desoto Parish Water Works-District One has issued a boil advisory for customers after a line break in the northern half of the parish, thanks to frozen water lines and busted valves.

This does not apply to the North Desoto Water System.

The district manager for Desoto Parish Water Works-District One says they've been battling frozen and busted water lines for three days now, and crews are still out finding and fixing the problems as fast as they can.

But until they catch up, residents with low water pressure should boil their water before using it to cook, bathe and clean.
