Bossier Issues Boil Advisory
More water troubles in our region. Bossier City residents are now under a boil advisory.
City leaders sent out this statement late Tuesday night:
At approximately 9:00 pm on Tuesday, February 16th, 2021, the Bossier City water system began experiencing widespread low water pressure calls. Crews have been working through the night to identify and address potential problems to improve pressure. The majority of the pressure loss is due to the extreme cold weather requiring customers to run water to prevent freezing pipes combined with countless ruptures to customer’s service lines.
Residents all across Bossier City are reporting low to no water pressure as more ice barrels into our region. Bossier crews are keeping a close eye on the system and trying to keep the pressure up.
Here's more info from the city:
Bossier is doing everything possible to maintain and increase water pressure. However, it is with an abundance of caution that we are issuing a system wide boil advisory to be in effect until system pressure normalizes and clear health samples are pulled. This advisory applies to Bossier’s bulk water customers. Specifically, the Cypress Black Bayou Water System, the Town of Benton Water System, and the Country Place Water System. The City of Bossier City will provide additional information as it becomes available. Your continued patience as we work to resolve this is greatly appreciated.
Shreveport residents are also under a voluntary boil advisory.
