NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A precautionary boil water advisory for the Lower Ninth Ward is still in effect Friday morning.

The Sewerage and Water Board, along with the state health department, is currently testing water samples and will have results back in approximately 24 hours from when this story was published.

Crews will notify residents and businesses when the boil water advisory is canceled.

The advisory was issued for the Lower Ninth Ward area Thursday after water pressure dropped during a repair in the area.

Customers in other areas of the city are not affected by the advisory.

Instructions for boiling water: Boil water for one full minute in a clean container. The one-minute boil time begins after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. (If there is a flat taste, it can be eliminated by shaking the water in a bottle or pouring it from one container to another.)

If you have any questions, please call 52WATER (529-2837).
