Update: Sewerage and Water Board Continues Working to Repair Leak at Carrollton Water Plant

For Immediate Release: Friday, November 20 2020

Water Pressure Remains Stable Throughout the City

New Orleans – The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) is continuing to repair a leak on a 50’’ water main at the Carrollton Water Plant. The broken main was installed between 1935 and 1936. At this stage in the repair, residents throughout the city should not experience any impacts. If your water pressure is lower than normal, please call 52-WATER.

Due to the age of the water main, we are custom making parts over the weekend and anticipate completing the repair by Monday. To see a picture of the repair, click the blue button below.
