BOSSIER CITY, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A boil advisory has been issued in Bossier City.

The system-wide advisory applies to Bossier’s bulk water customers. Specifically, the Cypress Black Bayou Water System, the Town of Benton Water System, and the Country Place Water System.

City officials say that the boil advisory is in response to low water pressure. The majority of the pressure loss is due to the extreme cold weather requiring customers to run water to prevent freezing pipes combined with countess ruptures to customer’s service lines.

The boil advisory will be in effect until the city can get water pressure normalized and get a clear health sample from the supply.
