NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) -The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans has canceled a precautionary boil-water advisory for the Village De L’est, Willowbrook, and Alcee Fortier areas.

Out of an abundance of caution, SWBNO issued this advisory for those properties closest to the sites of identified low water pressure readings. Customers in other areas of the city are not impacted.

A 12-inch diameter water main broke along Dwyer Rd. Monday likely leading to low water pressure in that area.

Remember:

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, residents in the affected area are advised to use bottled or boiled tap water to drink, cook, clean food or brush teeth until further notice. Residents with compromised immune systems should also use safe water to wash hands, shower or bathe.
