A boil water advisory for some Opelousas residents has been lifted after repairs to a burst water pipe last week.

Mayor Julius Alsandor says water samples have been tested and cleared by the Louisiana Department of Health, and residents and businesses in the area of Hwy 3043 are no longer under the boil water advisory.

The advisory was in effect after a broken pipe caused a leak, which led to water being shut off for several hours for some residents last Wednesday.

Residents were asked to boil their water until further notice once water was turned back on.
