Milton Water System has issued a boil advisory notice for customers along Fortune road between Verot School Road and Chemin Metairie Parkway.

CEO William Theriot said the water has already been turned off for affected customers. He said there was a break in the main water line.

Water will be shut off and the boil advisory in place until further notice.

According to the Louisiana Department of Health:

Boiling water will inactivate pathogenic microorganisms from the water.
—How to boil water: Fill a pot with water. Heat the water until bubbles come from the
bottom of the pot to the top.
—Once the water reaches a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute. Turn off the heat source
and let the water cool. Make sure that the water is cooled enough to prevent scalding.
Pour water into a clean container with a cover for storage.
