Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans officials said the advisory is due to a break in the water main on Florida Boulevard. The advisory was issued as a precaution.

Those affected should use bottled or boiled tap water to drink, cook, clean food or brush teeth. Those with compromised immune systems should also use safe water to wash hands, shower or bathe.

SWBNO officials will lift the advisory once water samples show it’s safe to drink.
