Scott officials issued a boil water advisory Sunday as a precaution due to a leaking water main on Old Spanish Trail between Sunset Street and L. Provost Road.

Upon repair and investigation, it was determined that the water main pressure did not go below 20 psi. Thus being in accordance with the Louisiana Department of Health regulations, the boil advisory is lifted.

Old Spanish Trail at Sunset Street will remain closed until further notice for road repairs.
