Boil Water Advisory cancelled

March 04, 2013

NEW ORLEANS, LA --The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans, in conjunction with the State Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH), has cancelled the boil water advisory for residents and businesses on the East Bank of Orleans Parish.

The advisory is cancelled because bacteriological tests confirmed that water in the city is safe to drink and can be used as normal for personal needs.

With the advisory cancelled, residents and businesses are advised to flush their internal and external plumbing by running water through their systems for several minutes.

The precautionary boil water advisory was issued Sunday morning when water pressure levels dropped below regulatory standards after a fire in the boiler room at the Sewerage and Water Board power plant.
