Boil water advisory lifted in Plaquemines Parish

Plaquemines Parish Government officials have lifted the boil water advisory for the area from Empire Bridge to Venice.

They issued the boil water advisory Wednesday after a break in the water line. The break in the line was located and repaired.

Water samples were sent to the state Department of Health and Hospitals for testing.

The state results now received show the water is safe for consumption, allowing residents to stop boiling their water.
