A boil water advisory in effect for the Town of Latta after someone hit a fire hydrant on Highway 917 Tuesday night has been lifted.

The incident caused some people to experience low water pressure, according to Latta Acting Town Administrator Jarett Taylor.

Taylor posted the following message on Facebook Wednesday morning:

“A fire hydrant was hit and destroy by a car on west Highway 917 last night. The line was fixed last night and experienced a leak this morning due to the high pressure put on the line. The problem has been resolved already this morning. Pressure should be back up within the hour to normal. Due to the accident, I am being told there are some reports of low pressure and possibly no pressure. The Town of Latta will be asking residents to boil their water as a precaution until in town water can be checked. Sorry for the inconvenience but it is always better to be safe. Thanks and have a great day.”

Thursday afternoon, Taylor said the advisory had been lifted.
