Update On Boil Water Advisory For English Turn And Lower Coast Algiers

NEW ORLEANS – Following yesterday’s issuance of a Boil Water Advisory for English Turn and the Lower Coast section of Algiers, the Sewerage and Water Board (S&WB) is continuing to make repairs to the ruptured water main and exercising valves to stabilize water pressure in the affected area.

         At this time, water pressure has improved and water sample testing has begun. Residents and businesses will remain under a Boil Water Advisory until water samples are collected and incubated for 24-hours and test results are known. Test results will be available on Wednesday afternoon. S&WB will notify residents when the advisory is lifted.

         Public health remains an absolute top priority, and S&WB is in constant communications with the state Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH). We thank the public for its patience as repairs are made and apologize for any inconvenience at this time. If you have any questions, please call 52WATER (529-2837).
