Water tests clean
Alexandria, La. (July 9, 2020)—The boil advisory issued Wednesday for the area near the 2400 block of Elliott Street is now lifted for the affected area. The City of Alexandria Water Department made repairs to a 2-inch water service lateral that resulted in the need for a boil water advisory. The State of Louisiana has tested the water, and the results of the tests are clear, according to Utility Director Michael Marcotte.
The Alexandria Water Department has lifted the boil advisory for businesses and residents located in the area described below:
All the properties along the 2400 block of Elliott Street. (Please see attached detail map).
With the lifting of the boil advisory, the City of Alexandria now recommends that businesses and residences in the affected areas:
- Run cold-water faucets for one minute;
- Run drinking water fountains for one minute;
- Flush automatic icemakers (make three batches of ice and discard);
- Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle; and
Run water coolers with direct water connections for five minutes.
