BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — A boil advisory will go into effect tomorrow due to water services being shut off for residents in parts of Bossier Parish.

According to the Consolidated Waterworks/Sewerage District No. 1., water service to a portion of Dogwood subdivision will be turned off between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 13 while new water mains are being installed in Dogwood South.

  • Oak Thicket
  • Doe Ridge
  • Oakside
  • South Oakside
  • Hollowbluff

You should boil your water for at least one minute before eating, drinking, making ice and brushing your teeth.
