Ashland, keep boiling water
ASHLAND - While Ashland’s water situation has improved substantially over the past 48 hours, the entire system remains under a boil-water advisory, and City Manager Ben Bitter said Wednesday it will likely be several days before it’s lifted.
According to Bitter, the system has to be pressurized and tests must show the water is safe to drink before the notice can be removed. He said he didn’t expect that to happen before the end of the weekend.
Also, the city of Raceland announced Wednesday its boil advisory had been lifted.
