Boil Water Advisory: Lower Ninth Ward


Crawfish season might be winding down, but over at the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (SWBMO) berl season is just beginning. On Thursday (6.02), the agency issued a precautionary boil water advisory for the Lower Ninth Ward.


Water World


The first boil water advisory of 2015 elicited jokes about the days after the Federal Flood form locals. The second boil water advisory of 2015 elicited anger about a failing infrastructure. Sensing the public unrest, Mayor Mitch held a presser on Monday to address the issue and promise improvements to the City’s water system.


Boil Water Advisory: Eastbank


NOLA's infrastructure issues are crossing the line between "Do you remember when this happened all the time?" to "This is still happening all the time." The Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) has placed the entire Eastbank of the City under a “boil water advisory” SWBNO spokesperson Robert Jackson warns, “Residents in the affected area are advised not to drink, make ice, brush teeth, bathe or shower, prepare or rinse food with tap water unless it has been properly disinfected until further notice.”


Boil Water Advisory in Effect for Eastbank


Feels like old times… The Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) has placed the entire Eastbank of the City under a “boil water advisory” SWBNO spokesperson Robert Jackson warns, “Residents in the affected area are advised not to drink, make ice, brush teeth, bathe or shower, prepare or rinse food with tap water unless it has been properly disinfected until further notice.”


Boil Water Advisory Lifted


Drink whatcha wanna and take a long shower, Uptown. The boil water advisory has been lifted, the City announced. Tests for bacteria confirmed that the water is safe to drink in the red zone following Tuesday''s water main break in the 7800 block of Cohn St.


Boil Water Advisory Decision Expected Wed. Afternoon


The rare midsummer berl is heading into its second day. An Uptown boil water advisory that was issued after a water main break created a gusher in Carrollton will be with us at least until Wednesday. Samples taken from the area that experienced low pressure this morning require a 24-hour incubation period, meaning the safety of the water won't be determined until Wednesday afternoon at the earliest.


Boil Water Advisory for East Bank of New Orleans is No More


It's rare that we're happy when the berl is over, but that's just how strange things got over the past day in New Orleans. There is no longer a boil water advisory for the East Bank of New Orleans, according to the City. About 2 p.m., the alert that's been in place for just over 24 hours was lifted.


Boil Water Advisory to Be With New Orleans For at Least 24 Hours


We’re used to day-long berls in New Orleans, and this one will be no different. Monday's boil water advisory for the East Bank of New Orleans will last until at least Tuesday afternoon, said Sewerage and Water Board Executive Director Marcia St. Martin. Samples of water were sent to the lab this afternoon, and have an incubation period of about 24 hours. Until the samples are reviewed and deemed free of bacteria, the advisory cannot be lifted, St. Martin said. She stressed that the advisory is “very precautionary.”


Boil Water Advisory Issued for East Bank of New Orleans


It's berl time once again, and we aren't talking about crawfish. The City issued a boil water advisory for the East Bank of New Orleans early this afternoon as a result of a power outage at the main Sewerage and Water Board plant this morning. Until further notice, residents shouldn't use tap water unless it has been properly disinfected for one minute. Power was restored immediately after the outage, which occurred at 8:30 a.m. The advisory does not affect Algiers.


Ya Heard?


In case you ain't heard. Berl ya water! Yes, that's still in effect! Indefinitely. Why? Well, the official line from the folks at Water & Sewage, "At approximately 10: 30 Friday night, the Sewerage & Water Board lost 25 cycle power at its main water plant, causing low water pressure throughout the East Bank of the City."
