ORIGINAL STORY: 

Residents who live in a certain part of Bossier City are being advised to boil their water.

On Friday the City of Bossier City issued a boil advisory after a water main was struck by a company working on a gas line. 

A subcontractor for CenterPoint Energy, Wayne Holden Company, was performing a gas main relocation along LA Hwy 80 near the intersection of Thompson St. yesterday afternoon and ruptured a marked water main.

The advisory affects the Old North Bossier Subdivision, specifically, west of Old Benton Rd., south of Joannes St., and north of Colquitt St.

Crews are working to make the needed repairs and they should be complete by 5 p.m. today. During this time residents will have low water pressure. 

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.
