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

For Immediate Release: Friday, March 20 2020

New Orleans – Starting at 8 a.m. tomorrow, March 21, 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. This valve replacement will also increase the redundancy needed to protect the distribution system.

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 and ask residents near the impacted area to call 52-WATER immediately if they experience a drop in pressure.

Valves are critical to our water distribution system because they allow us to reroute drinking water to our customers while conducting repairs or responding to emergencies.

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