WASHINGTON PARISH, La. (WGNO) — The Mount Hermon Water District of Washington Parish has issued a boil water advisory while work crews attempt to locate and repair a water leak that is currently causing low water pressure.

Officials are asking that any customers who see water flowing in ditches near their home to contact the emergency number 800-375-3792 to report it.  At the moment, customers are encouraged to boil their water for 1 minute prior to human consumption. 

Once the leak is repaired, water samples will be collected and the advisory lifted.

Officials say Monday will be the earliest the advisory will be lifted.
