Low water pressure may hit several NOLA neighborhoods

New Orleans home and business owners receive water pressure alert New Orleans home and business owners receive water pressure alert
NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

If heavy makeup or paint are part of your plans for Halloween weekend, you may want to make sure they're washed off by Sunday night.

Sewerage and Water Board crews will be performing maintenance on a 50-inch water main, as part of  the ongoing SELA Drainage Project causing a potential drop in water pressure Monday. Residents and businesses in a large section of New Orleans may experience low water pressure beginning at 11 a.m. on Nov. 2.

Affected areas may include Carrollton, Uptown, the Central Business District, Mid-City, the Ninth Ward, the Warehouse District, and New Orleans East. 

According to a news release from the Sewerage and Water Board, pressure might not return to normal levels until 11 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Administrators say efforts will be directed towards minimizing impact to the city, but they also say it will be helpful for customers experiencing problems during this activity to report them by calling 52WATER (529-2837).
