      Comment
  • After a large water main broke earlier Thursday, the city of Leesville has issued a boil advisory for any customers who lost water service as a result of the outage.
    Recommendations during the boil advisory include boiling water for one full minute in a clean container (the boil time begins after the water has been brought to a rolling boil); mixing 1/8 teaspoon of unscented liquid chlorine laundry bleach with one gallon of water and let it stand for at least 30 minutes prior to consumption if the water is clear; or mixing five drops of two percent United States Pharmacopeia tincture of iodine solution to each quart of clear water and letting it stand for 30 minutes prior to consumption, if the water is clear (if the water is cloudy, use 10 drops).
    The advisory is in effect until rescinded by the city.
    For more information, call city hall at (337) 239-2444.
