CONVERSE, La. - Some ArkLaTex residents are urged to boil their water before using it.
A boil water advisory was announced Monday for customers of the South DeSoto Water System after a four inch water line on La. Highway 481 was damaged. This caused low water pressure in the lines on U.S. Highway 84 and La. Highway 481.
Residents are encouraged to boil tap water for at least one minute before drinking it, using it for washing fruits and vegetables, or using it for brushing teeth.
