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.


H2GO!


Brush your teeth! The Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) announced that the water on the Eastbank is once again safe to drink. The green light 30+ hour “boil water advisory” for residents.


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 Enters Day Two


Updated 17:00 - The Boil Water Advisory has been lifted. Tests for bacteria were negative. Go brush your teeth!

Evian prices skyrocketing? The majority of the City is entering a second day with limited water. Yesterday, the Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) has placed the entire East Bank of the City under a “boil water advisory.” 


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.


East Bank Boil Water Advisory Lifted


It's finally safe again to drink from the sink. The boil water advisory has been lifted, after "bacteriological tests confirmed that water in the city is safe to drink as normal for personal needs," according to a release from Mayor Landrieu's Office. 

 


Boil Water Advisory Still in Effect, Next Update Mid Afternoon


East Bank residents are beginning to appreciate the convenience of tap water, and Mayor Mitch said to keep the kettles whistling. Landrieu's Office said the boil water advisory is still in effect, and public officials still have a few more hours before they can give citizens the go-ahead to drink from the sink. 


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.
