Repair on 48-inch water main at Carrollton Water Treatment Plant; Slightly Lower than Normal Pressure Possible

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, November 1 2022

Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) crews will have to isolate a section of a 48-inch water main located on the Carrollton Water Treatment Plant campus on Wednesday morning, Nov. 2, starting at 8 a.m.

While a significant pressure drop is not anticipated, some customers may experience slightly lower than normal pressure. The repair is expected to be completed on Friday, Nov. 4.

This 48" water main is one of six large transmission mains that supplements water to much of the metro area. 

While the repair is underway, crews will monitor water pressure throughout the city. If pressures dip below 20 psi, we will notify the public of the need for a precautionary boil water advisory.

Customers who are experiencing low or no water pressure should always call our Emergency Call Center at 504-52-WATER; we are open 24/7 to serve you.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as we work to maintain your water system.
