SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Two Northwest Louisiana water systems have issued boil advisories following a power outage.

Customers of the Eagle Water System and Colworth Place Water System, both in Keithville, now are under a boil advisory.

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).
