ST. BERNARD PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A portion of St. Bernard Parish is under a boil water advisory after a water main broke in the area sometime after 5 p.m. on June 8, 2016.

According to the St. Bernard Parish Government, residents from Saro Lane South to the Plaquemines Parish line should boil their water before consuming or cooking with it.

The line was broken due to directional drilling by a non-parish contractor, according to a statement from the parish. Repairs could take several hours. After they are complete and water service is restored, a boil water advisory will go into effect until tests prove the water is safe to drink.

St. Bernard Parish has set up a phone line to answer any questions: 504-352-6809.
