PEARL RIVER, La. - A boil water notice was issued for Pearl River due to a water system failure early Thursday morning, according to the St. Tammany Fire Protection District No. 11.

The system failure occurred possibly from a lightning strike to the system pump on Thursday.

The system and pressure have been restored, but the mayor put a 'boil water before consumption' order in place.

It is in effect until further notice.
