Boil water advisory canceled for eastbank of Orleans Parish

Updated:

The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans, in conjunction with the State Department of Health and Hospitals has canceled the boil water advisory for residents and businesses on the eastbank of Orleans Parish.

The advisory is canceled because bacteriological tests confirmed that water in the city is safe to drink and can 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.

The original advisory was issued Monday when water pressure levels dropped because of an equipment malfunction at the power plant.
