SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — A boil advisory is now in effect following a water main blow out in Shreveport.

Officials with the City of Shreveport Department of Water & Sewerage announced Tuesday that a voluntary boil advisory has been issued due to a water main blowout. The water also had to be cut off for repairs.

The advisory impacts the Salvation Army’s Boys & Girls Club on 2821 Greenwood Rd.
