We’re Improving Your Water System – Carrollton Neighborhood: S. Carrollton Avenue and Zimpel Street

For Immediate Release: Friday, March 6 2020

New Orleans – Starting  at 8 a.m. tomorrow, March 7, 2020, Sewerage & Water Board crews will repair a broken water valve on South Carrollton Avenue and Zimpel Street in the Carrollton neighborhood. This work is being done in order to avoid a future unexpected loss of service for our customers in this area. We are making the repairs on a weekend to avoid disrupting service to nearby schools while classes are in session.

During this repair, some residents in the Carrollton neighborhood will likely experience low to no water pressure. All water pressure is expected to be restored before the end of day. We encourage residents in the area to make any necessary preparations. We ask residents near the impacted area to call 52-WATER immediately if they experience a drop in pressure.

In order to make the repair, starting tomorrow through Sunday, lake bound traffic on South Carrollton will be detoured onto Zimpel Street then to Short Street, followed by a left turn onto Oak Street then back to South Carrollton Avenue.

We appreciate the patience of our customers while we work to improve our water system.
