UPDATE: 

You no longer have to boil your water if you are a customer of the Oil City Water Works Water System.

Officials announced Wednesday that the boil advisory was lifted after water samples tested by the Louisiana Department of Health came back normal.

ORIGINAL STORY: 

An entire water system has been placed under a boil advisory.

On Monday a boil advisory was issued for the Oil City Water Works Water System following an interruption in service due to repairs on several fire hydrants. 

The advisory impacts all customers.

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

The advisory will remain in effect until further notice.
