Sewerage and Water Board issues boil water advisory for all of Venetian Isles

August 31, 2012

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- A precautionary boil water advisory is in effect for all of Venetian Isles from the flood protection levee and HWY 90 (Chef Menteur Hwy) to the Chef Pass Bridge.  This area includes the entire Venetian Isles subdivision.  The Sewerage and Water Board, in consultation with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH), is issuing a precautionary boil water advisory that will be in effect until further notice.

The Board is recommending that customers disinfect their water by boiling it for one minute and letting it cool down prior to consumption (including drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, bathing or preparing food). 

The New Orleans Fire Department will be providing water for personal use beginning this evening. NOFD will distribute water by truck on a block by block basis.

The boil water advisory will remain in effect until further notice for customers in the affected area.  The Sewerage and Water Board will notify residents when the advisory is lifted.  If you have any questions, please call 52WATER (504-529-2837).

INSTRUCTIONS FOR RESIDENTS

Boil water for one full minute in a clean container.  The one-minute boil time begins after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.  (If there is a flat taste, it can be eliminated by shaking the water in a bottle or pouring it from one container to another.)
