Some Ville Platte residents are no longer under a boil advisory.

The residents of Magnolia Street from Court Street to South Soileau Street, including residents of Court, Young and Calcasieu streets are no longer under a boil water advisory. 

Residents of Stagg Street from E. Magnolia to Rev. E.D. Alfred Street; residents along Rev. E.D. Alfred Street from Stagg to Evangeline street, and residents of S. Chataignier Street from Cotton to Pine street are still under a boil water advisory, a spokesman said. 

Residents under the advisory must boil their water for one full minute in a clean container until using for drinking, cooking or brushing teeth.

The advisory is issued because of the cutting and capping of old main lines, the spokesman said.

An announcement will be made when the water is determined to be safe to drink again.
