ORIGINAL- SLIDELL- Parts of Slidell are under a precautionary boil water advisory after a street leak repair required Tammany Utilities to turn off the water on Friday.

 St. Tammany Parish, officials say residents living in the following areas are included in the advisory: Cross Gates, The Bluffs, The Landings, Turtle Creek and Willow Wood Subdivisions.

 Parish officials say water services were shut off to repair a significant leak near the intersection of Cross Gates Boulevard and Old Military Road.

 It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:

Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container.  The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.  (The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.)

 Parish officials say the advisory has been issued out of an abundance of caution, and in accordance with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospital regulations.

 Officials say Tammany Utilities will end the boil advisory once DHH confirms that water sample tests show that the water is safe.

 Officials say they anticipate that the earliest the boil advisory will be rescinded will be Tuesday,     February 25th.

 Residents with questions can call Tammany Utilities 985-276-6400.
