A water boil advisory is in effect for customers in the vicinity of Stilley Road in Pineville following rupture of a water main Wednesday.

Pineville crews are repairing the line to restore service, but the approximately 260 affected customers will need to boil water before using it until further notice, a city of Pineville news release said.

Customers on the following roads are affected: Wainwright Road, Deer Trace, Quail Creek Apartments, Dawn Drive, Stilley Road and Navaho Place.

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.
