Calcasieu Parish Waterworks District No. 5 has issued a boil advisory for the area of Joe Spears and Clement Roads.

The advisory is effective immediately and is due to a planned outage in the area.

According to the Waterworks district, a contractor is flushing newly installed lines which may cause low water pressure.

Residents in the affected area should disinfect their water before consuming it. Water should be boiled for one full minute in a clean container.

The advisory will be rescinded once the all clear has been given by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals' Office of Public Health.
