South Bossier Water System has issued a boil water notice for all of its customers.
The water boil advisory has been lifted for Town of Greenwood water customers.
Eastern Cass Water Supply Corp. has lifted the boil order for all of its customers along Cass County Road 1899 in Linden. The boil order for customers along Cass County Road 4810 remains in effect; results of lab tests on water samples are expected Wednesday morning.
- Country Place Utilities LLC has issued a boil advisory for all 400 of its customers in Haughton. Workers had to repair a leak in a main pipline.
- Eastern Cass Water Supply Corp. has issued a boil order for all of its customers on Cass County Road 4810. A construction crew is making a wet tie-in. “Hopefully, this will be our last construction wet tie-in,” office manager Mary Nichols said. This boil order is in addition to one previously issued for customers along Cass County Road 1899 in Linden, where a utility crew punctured a main pipeline, she added.
- Greenwood water customers remain under a boil advisory in the wake of a problem with the Louisiana town’s elevated storage tank that resulted in little to no water pressure in some areas over the weekend. Water service has since been restored. And once the storage tanks were full, the town intended to begin flushing the pipelines to address the discoloration of the water.
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).
