The boil advisory for customers on Eastlake and Westlake Roads in Ouachita Parish has been lifted.


Original Story:

The Greater Ouachita Water Company has issued a boil advisory for customers in the Eastlake and Westlake Road area, due to a main line repair where water service was temporarily interrupted.

This advisory is in effect until further notice.

It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:

+ Boil water for (1) one full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.
