Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - A precautionary boil advisory is in place for residents in north Lake Charles, according to the City of Lake Charles.

The boil advisory is expected to last for 18 hours, City of Lake Charles Public Information Officer Katie Harrington said.

Areas in north Lake Charles were experiencing low pressure due to a contractor striking a 12-inch water main while doing work in the area on Friday, Harrington said.

The City of Lake Charles will rescind the boil advisory upon notification from LDH that water samples collected and submitted for testing have met their water quality and safety requirements.
