Boil advisory lifted

UPDATE as of Saturday, Feb. 27:

SHREVEPORT, La. - The remaining zip codes 71119 and 71129 of the Shreveport Water System have been cleared from the boil advisory, according to the City of Shreveport.

The boil advisory is now lifted for the entire Shreveport Water System as of Saturday morning.

After a boil advisory is lifted, the city recommends:

• Flush all household plumbing and appliances through the cold water taps for at least 5 minutes. Longer service lines may require additional flushing.

• Dump ice from automatic ice makers that were in service during the boil advisory. To completely flush out the lines, dump at least 3 batches of ice made after the advisory has been lifted and disinfect the ice storage bins, as well.

• For hot water tanks, inline filters, or water coolers, run enough water through the system to replace at least one full volume of the lines and tanks.

• Replace any disposable water filters.

SHREVEPORT, La. - The City of Shreveport says the Water Department has restored water service, except to a few isolated areas in the city.

Isolated areas include: West Shreveport on the extreme side of West 70th and some residences along Buncombe Road. 

City of Shreveport's Communications Director Marquel Sennet said crews are now able to access elevated storage tanks at Pines Road and 70th. Because of this access, customers should see their pressure increase throughout the morning.

Water service has been restored to Highland and Queensborough neighborhoods.

According to the city, hospitals have sufficient pressure to operate and the department will be increasing the pressure to them throughout the day.  

The department is preparing to take water samples and hopes to lift the boil advisory by Saturday.
