HAMMOND, LA (WVUE) -

Tangipahoa Parish Water District officials have lifted a boil water advisory that affected parts of Hammond. The advisory was issued Friday due to a water main break which resulted in pressure loss. 

Officials say that the areas affected were Club Deluxe Road from Veterans Boulevard to South Morrison Boulevard and adjacent roads which included but not limited to Yellow Water Road, Thompson, Pelican Professional Park , Professional Plaza and Elmwood Park Subdivision. 

According to officials, water samples were collected on Saturday and tested. Officials determined that the water was safe to drink after the tests on the bacteriological samples came back clear.
