Boil Water Advisory lifted for East Bank of Jefferson Parish

January 20, 2018 - 12:15 pm


Jefferson Parish President Michael Yenni, in conjunction with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals and the Jefferson Parish Water Department, lifted the Boil Water Advisory for the East Bank of Jefferson Parish early Saturday afternoon. 

Based on the restoration of pressure within the distribution system and the analysis of the bacteriological samples collected within the distribution system on Friday, January 19th, the water in Jefferson Parish has been deemed safe.

Customers on the East Bank may now use the water without boiling or disinfecting.

No more precautionary actions are necessary.  Normal water service is expected to be maintained from this time forward.

Since this past Tuesday evening to Friday afternoon the Parish had successfully repaired 115 water main breaks. This was accomplished with a combination of in-house and contract crews working around the clock.

If you are see a water main break please contact the Jefferson Parish Water Department at 504-838-4363.
