The water main break at Jean Lafitte Parkway and Patricia Street caused the water pressure in the affected area to drop below 15 pounds. The area affected is everything west of Jean Lafitte Parkway from the River north to Benjamin Street and west to Angela Street. Repair crews are on site working to repair water pressure.
Water samples are being collected to be tested by the Department of Health’s regional lab in Amite, LA. Results from Lab testing take approximately 18-24 hours. St. Bernard Parish Government will notify the public once the boil water advisory has been lifted.
