LAPLACE, LA (WVUE) -
The water system in St. John the Baptist Parish has been a problem for years, but now, the parish has a plan to fix it once and for all.
Water at the Lewis House doesn't always run smoothly.
"The water pressure has always been an issue in the parish," said Carol Lewis who lives in LaPlace. "If you're in the shower and your hair is full of shampoo. You need the pressure to get the shampoo out, you could be standing there a long time.
Low water pressure, sometimes even no water at all, is a common problem in LaPlace. It's something St. John the Baptist Parish has been trying to fix.
"We've made significant improvements in quality of water, but ultimately we need something that's permanent and will work in the middle of storms," said Natalie Robottom, the St. John the Baptist Parish President.
