BATON ROUGE- The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals issued a boil advisory for the following systems in response to Hurricane Issac:
West Baton Rouge Parish officials said a boil order has been lifted for the Brusly-Addis area. It was put into place earlier after a tree fell on a hydrant attached to a water main, causing a drop in pressure.
Customers need to disinfect the water prior to using it. They said boil the water for one full minute. If you're unable to boil water, mix 1/8 teaspoon of unsented, liquid chlorine laundry bleach with one gallon of water and let it stand for 30 minutes.
To check to see if your water is safe to use, call OPH Safe Drinking Water Program, 225-342-7499.
