COUSHATTA, La. (KSLA) - The Town of Coushatta has been placed under a systemwide boil water advisory for the second time in just a few days.

On Monday, Sept. 26, town officials announced that the water system has experienced severe interruptions due to ongoing construction of the new water system, which has caused low water pressure. Due to these issues, the water being circulated is of questionable microbiological quality.

As such, the town is issuing a cautionary boil advisory for the entire system. The boil advisory will remain in effect until further notice.

All water used for consumption should be boiled for a full minute before use.

This is the second systemwide boil advisory the town has had to issue in just four days. The first one was issued Sept. 22 due to water main break and was cleared the following day.
