A boil advisory in effect for a portion of East Central Bossier Water System for the Rocky Mount area.

According to the Bossier Parish Police Jury, some customers are experiencing low to no pressure in areas east of the water plant at 1885 La. Highway 160. This is due to loss of commercial power and a failure of the emergency generation to automatically start.

Other areas affected are the Town of Rocky Mount and points north on Hwy. 157, Fire Tower Road, McBeth Road, Hwy. 160 east of Rocky Mount, Martin Road, DeMoss Road and Clarkston Road.

“All of the system west of the plant at 1885 Hwy. 160 was not affected because this area operates on head pressure from the ground storage tank and the ground elevation,” reads a news release.

TIPS FOR BOILING WATER

It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:

Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. (The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one clean container to another or by adding a pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled).
