SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - A boil advisory was issued for some water customers in Shreveport due to repairs beginning on Wednesday, June 7.

City crews started working on a 24″ transmission main that feeds the main pressure zone. Crews were on site Wednesday working to identify the leak. Water was temporarily shut off for customers in the 2700-2800 blocks of Ashton Street and in the 1100-1400 blocks of Andrew Street.

As of Wednesday at 8:45 p.m., repairs were complete. However, a voluntary boil advisory remains in place.

Once the absence of coliform bacteria is confirmed, the Shreveport Department of Water and Sewerage and the Louisiana Department of Health will cancel the boil advisory.

Anyone who has questions should call 318-673-7300 or 318-673-5510.
