Boil advisory issued for area along Linwood Lane

A boil advisory has been issued for a portion of Linnwood Lane.
The boil advisory is for properties along the 2300 block of Linnwood Lane, between Greenway Drive and Greenwood Drive. The boil advisory was issued after crews completed service repairs to the water line, according to a press release from the City of Alexandria.
It is recommended that all consumers in the advisory area disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods.
To do so, boil water for one full minute in a clean container. Shaking can eliminate the flat taste of the water, pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.
