Water service will be cut to 2 St. Tammany subdivisions

Covington, La. - Some residents in St. Tammany Parish will be without water service beginning Monday night at 10 p.m.   The shut-off comes as Tammany Utilities begin repairing a water main at the entrance to Arbor Walk Business Park in Covington.

The areas affected include the Arbor Walk Business Park, Arbor Walk Subdivision and Natchez Trace Subdivision. A parish spokesman, Ronnie Simpson, says the work is being done late at night in hopes of impacting as few people as possible.  It's expected the water will remain off for several hours. 

Once service is restored, residents are being advised to begin boiling their water before use.  Simpson says the boil water advisory is put into effect whenever a water system loses pressure for any length of time.

Water samples will be obtained and sent to the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, as is standard procedure when the water system is turned off for several hours. A precautionary boil advisory will be in effect for these areas.  Customers  are advised to boil water for at least one minute.

Tammany Utilities will rescind this advisory and notify residents by placing signs throughout the neighborhood once sampling has confirmed that the water is safe to drink. Tammany Utilities anticipates doing so by midday Wednesday November 6, 2013. 

 An announcement will also be posted on the parish website at www.stpgov.org.
