S&WB to issue boil water credit

New Orleans, La. - The Sewerage and Water Board is informing customers that they will receive a one-day credit adjustment on their October bill to reflect the recent "Boil Water" event.

Executive Director, Marcia St. Martin said, "It is our intention to provide potable drinking water every day.  In consideration of the Boil Water Advisory, we determined that it was prudent not to charge customers for water usage during that event."

The October water and sewer bill will include a credit adjustment for the average of one-day of usage during that billing period.  Ms. St. Martin noted that this adjustment is limited to customers in the east bank service area and is for water service only, as sewer service was not interrupted.
