SWBNO Experiencing Power Outages at Sewer Pump Stations throughout the City, Urges Residents to Reduce Wastewater Generated by Appliances

For Immediate Release: Sunday, August 29 2021

A number of our Sewage Pump Stations on both the East and West Bank of New Orleans are experiencing power outages. This increases the potential for sewer backups in homes. We urge those residents who still have power to minimize wastewater leaving their homes by not running your dishwasher or washing clothes.

These stations will be out of service until the storm passes and it is safe for us to make assessments.

We encourage residents to follow @SWBNewOrleans on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates throughout the event.
