HOMER, La. - A boil advisory has been issued for the Town of Homer until further notice.
The advisory is effective immediately. All residents on the town’s water system are urged to boil their water before consuming. Tap water can be used for bathing, washing laundry, and similar purposes
The Center for Disease Control recommends the following boiling instructions:
- Heat the water until bubbles come from the bottom of the pot to the top.
- Once the water reaches a rolling boil, let it boil for 1 minute.
- Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.
- Pour the water into a clean container with a cover for storage.
The town is working to resolve the issue, which is connected to breakage in a water line in the downtown area and issues with restoring water pressure. The boil advisory is expected to last at least the next two days.
