Update: Precautionary Boil Water Advisory Canceled for Lower Coast Algiers
For Immediate Release
April 14, 2024

The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO), in consultation with the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH), has canceled the precautionary boil water advisory for a limited portion of New Orleans' Westbank, which included:

Customers who have not used their water supply during this precautionary boil water advisory are advised to flush their internal and external plumbing by running water through their system for several minutes.

SWBNO is committed to providing safe drinking water, and this precautionary boil water advisory was issued out of an abundance of caution to ensure the public’s safety. We thank the impacted residents and businesses for their patience and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. 

Boil water advisories are issued out of an abundance of caution whenever the water pressure drops below 20 psi. We agree with the recommendations of our regulatory partner, LDH, that it is prudent to issue these advisories.  

We appreciate your patience as we work to improve your water system. As always, if you are experiencing very low or no water pressure, or witness a water or sewer emergency, please call 504-52-WATER (504-529-2837) and choose your language option (1 for English) and 1 for emergencies.
