SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) - Tammany Utilities said they discovered a problem with the disinfection pump at the Willow Wood Well on Monday.

Some portions of the service area fell below the required amount of chlorine required. Tammany Utilities personnel responded and worked throughout the night to correct the problem.

Out of an abundance of caution and in consultation with the Louisiana Department of Health, a precautionary boil advisory is in place for TU customers in Cross Gates, The Bluffs, The Landings, Turtle Creek, Willow Wood, Taylor Trace and Autumn Lakes Subdivisions.

This boil water advisory will remain in effect until rescinded by Tammany Utilities. It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it - including fountain drinks - making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods.
