Nichols Elementary School and Moore Community House Head Start Day Care are under a water boil advisory in Biloxi after a contractor hit a water line Thursday.

The city issued the precautionary boil advisory notice after Oscar Renda Contracting, the contractor doing the infrastructure work on the north contract, hit the water line Thursday afternoon. The advisory covers homes and businesses on Division Street between Lee Street and Nichols, along with Nichols Street and Elmer Street.

The 90-minute outage apparently was limited to homes on Lee north of Division, the city said, but pressure was diminished on neighboring streets. Biloxi supplied drinking water, cooking water and hand sanitizer to the school and day care.
