The Walnut Bayou Water System has issued a boil advisory for Madison Parish and Parts of Tensas Parish.

Water system officials say a radio problem at the Bear Lake Plant Walnut Bayou Water System has caused a problem with the water supply that will disrupt water to a portion of the water system.

For a list of affected areas, call (318) 574-2463.

Because of these problems, the water produced by the water supply system is of questionable microbiological quality.

It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it; this includes making ice, brushing teeth, or using it in food preparation.

Boil water for one full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.
