Landrieu Boil Water Advisory For New Orleans Is Cancelled
Written by 

Mayor Mitch Landrieu has cancelled the precautionary Boil Water advisory roughly two days after the The the Sewerage & Water Board lost 25-cycle power at its main water plant, causing low water pressure (as low as 10 pounds per square inch) throughout the East Bank of the City.

The Advisory has caused concern among many citizens tourists and businesses within the New Orleans area.

The following is a press report from Landrieu’s media office:

Mayor Landrieu, public health officials, and Sewerage &
Water Board officials announced this evening that the precautionary Boil Water Advisory issued for the East Bank of Orleans Parish yesterday has been cancelled.  Test results were verified by the state Department of Health and Hospitals.

"After following the protocols of the federal Environmental Protection Agency and the state Department of Health and Hospitals, and after working with doctors, engineers, chemists and other experts, we can report that the water in New Orleans is safe and the precautionary Boil Water Advisory is cancelled,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

State health regulations required the precautionary Boil Water Advisory and testing because water pressure dropped below 15 psi (pounds per square inch) which increases the risk of contaminants entering the water system.


At approximately 7:00 am on Saturday, the Sewerage and Water Board's chemists and technicians began collecting 28 water samples from sites throughout the East Bank.   In an abundance of caution, a second round of sampling began at 2:00 pm Saturday.  Tests were conducted at the Board's Water Purification Laboratory. A 24-hour  incubation period is required to determine if any harmful bacteria are present in the samples.

At approximately 10:30 pm on Friday, the Sewerage & Water Board lost 25-cycle power at its main water plant, causing low water pressure (as low as 10 pounds per square inch) throughout the East Bank of the City.  According to the Board, water pressure has normalized.

The Mayor has ordered an after action report of the incident.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
