Boil water advisory for City of Covington lifted

COVINGTON, LA (WVUE) - The boil water advisory, issued Friday for the City of Covington, has been lifted.

The advisory was issued after water in a new section of a water line, which was part of an ongoing project, was pressurized prematurely.

As a precaution, officials issued the advisory.

Officials say that the advisory was lifted around 4 p.m. Saturday after tests by the Department of Health and Hospitals deemed the water safe to drink.
