A precautionary boil water advisory was issued Wednesday for a portion of St. Bernard Parish, officials said.

The St. Bernard Parish Government is advising residents from Saro Lane South to the Plaquemines Parish line to boil their water before consuming or cooking with it.

“The line was broken due to directional drilling of a non-parish contractor,” officials said in a post on social media. “Repairs could take several hours. Once repairs are completed, the water will be turned on and boil water notice will be in effect.”

Notices were placed on the front doors of residents in affected areas, officials said.
