Residents in the Lewisburg-Bellevue area are still under a boil advisory at this time.
The Lewisburg-Bellevue Water System experienced a main distribution line break Saturday morning, February 23, 2013.
The Lewisburg-Bellevue Water System is issuing a Boil Advisory effective immediately for an area that includes the area on the East side of Highway 182 from Highway 358 to Harry Guilbeau Road. Homes not included in the area are not impacted. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by the Water System.
It is recommended that all customers disinfect their water before consuming it (including 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 one 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 container to another, or by adding a pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.
Again, please be sure to disinfect your water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.
The Lewisburg-Bellevue Water System will rescind this Boil Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals - Office of Public Health that samples collected from our water supply system verify the water in area impacted to be safe.
