A boil water advisory has been issued for parts of Bay St. Louis after a contractor hit a fire hydrant Monday. Officials say water in the area has been shut off while crews work to replace the damaged water line.

The area under the boil water advisory stretches from Hwy. 90 south to Old Spanish Trail and from Henderson St. east to St. Charles Street.

The City of Bay St. Louis has issued a BOIL WATER ADVISORY for parts of the City near the Waveland city limit lines along Old Spanish Trail.

Due to a contractor hitting a fire hydrant, the water has had to be turned off to make repairs to the damaged line. Once repairs have been made and the water has been restored, residents and businesses in the affected area will be asked to BOIL their water BEFORE consuming it.

After proper tests have been completed, service customers in this area will be notified when the BOIL WATER ADVISORY has been lifted.

City officials said residents and business in the area will be asked to boil tap water once the repairs are made. People in the area will be notified when the boil water advisory is lifted.
