SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – The City of Shreveport Department of Water & Sewerage has lifted a boil advisory issued Monday for customers in the 3100 to 3500 blocks of Fairfield Ave. after a water main blowout at Stephenson St. that required water service to be cut off.

The broken main caused water to gush from beneath the street Monday in Shreveport’s Highland neighborhood.

It happened in front of the Catholic Center at Fairfield & Stephenson St., leaving nearby residents with little or no water pressure.

Repairs were completed Tuesday and the city says water samples have been tested for microbiological quality and ruled out the presence of coliform bacteria.
