NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board will conduct two test closures of water lines at its Carrollton Water Plant. The first test closure will take place Sunday Nov. 19 from 4 a.m. until 9 a.m. That project involves the closure of a 43 inch water line in order for repairs to be made to it, according to a Sewerage and Water Board spokesperson. The closure may impact water pressure for the Central Business District. 

The second closure is scheduled for Monday Nov. 20 from 1 a.m. until 11 a.m. The purpose of that closure is to prepare for the upcoming Water Hammer Project, which will consist of the installation of necessary piping needed on the 48" water main. The spokesperson adds that the $50-million project is aimed to help prevent future boil water advisories and make the City's water supply more resilient. That closure may affect water pressure for the entire East Bank of Orleans Parish.

During both closures, Sewerage and Water Board employees will be monitoring the water pressure and any impact on affected areas. The Sewerage and Water Board is also asking customers to report any changes in water pressure. Customers can do so by calling 52-WATER. The Sewerage and Water Board says that any drops in the water pressure can prompt immediate closure of the controlled test.
