Abita Springs under boil water advisory

Updated:

Abita Springs, La. - A boil water advisory was issued for the town of Abita Springs Thursday.

"The Town of Abita Springs has experienced problems with the water system," said a new release sent out by the Town Clerk. "Because of these problems, the water produced by our water supply system may be of questionable quality."

The release did not elaborate further on the problem.

As a precaution, residents and businesses are urged to boil water for one full minute in a clean container before consuming it, making ice, brushing teeth, using it for food preparation or rinsing food.

The town is awaiting word from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals that water samples collected from water supply system have shown the water to be safe. It expects to be notified by midday Friday.
