We’re Improving Your Water System in the Freret Neighborhood – Repairing Broken Water Valve

For Immediate Release: Friday, May 29 2020

New Orleans – On Sunday, May 31, 2020, from the hours of 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., Sewerage and Water Board (SWBNO) will repair a broken water valve at the corner of Robert Street and Freret Street. Click the blue button below to view a map of the area.

During this repair, some residents in the Freret neighborhood will likely experience low to no water pressure. We encourage residents in the area to make any necessary preparations and 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.
