Boil water advisory canceled for New Orleans East

New Orleans, La. - The Sewerage and Water Board has canceled the boil water advisory for residents and businesses in a section of eastern New Orleans bounded by Morrison Road, Hayne Boulevard, Downman Road and Bullard Road.

The advisory for that area was canceled after bacteriological tests confirmed that water in the area was safe to drink and could be used as normal for personal needs.

With the advisory canceled, residents and businesses are advised to flush their internal and external plumbing by running water through their systems for several minutes.
