IOWA, LA (KPLC) - A boil advisory in the Town of Iowa has been lifted.

A CenturyLink crew working in Iowa bored a hole through an 8-inch water main at the corner of S. Knapp Avenue and W. Second Street Monday. The water main was repaired that day, but some in the town remained under a boil advisory.

Mayor Carol Ponthieux said Thursday that tests have shown that the water is now safe to drink.
