NEW ORLEANS (WVUE)
Neighbors along the Uptown parade route in New Orleans turned to the FOX 8 Defenders about a leak in the street. They're worried it could impact parades, and people who enjoy them. With thousands of locals and tourists flocking to the area for the first full weekend of parades Uptown, residents fear it could become a public safety concern.
The Sewerage and Water Board tells FOX 8, crews inspected the leak for a second time Wednesday that revealed a small leak. They tell us soil under the surface has not been displaced, and believe it's best to wait until after Mardi Gras to repair the leak.
