SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) –Officials with the City of Shreveport announces the possibility of temporary changes coming soon to resident's water.
Right now, Cross Lake is the city's drinking water source, according to city officials, and as of now the water levels are reportedly lower than normal, due to the lack of rainfall.
As a result, the city announces plans to begin pumping water into the lake from Twelvemile Bayou, which is the city's secondary water source.
City officials say that some residents may notice minor changes in the treated water, such as some increases in water "hardness" because Twelvemile Bayou's water has higher chloride levels than Cross Lake.
Officials say some customers may notice no change, while others may notice changes in taste.
Be advised, officials report that the changes are only temporary, that is until Cross Lake levels are back to normal.
