SWB Issues Boil Water Advisory for Lower Coast Algiers

The New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board (SWBNO) issued a precautionary boil water advisory for the Lower Coast Algiers area on Friday, October 2. According to SWBNO, the advisory is due to a drop in water pressure after a driver struck a fire hydrant.

Residents living in the affected area should use bottled water or boil any tap water for cooking, cleaning food, drinking, or brushing teeth until further notice. Those with compromised immune systems should also use bottled water or boil water for handwashing, showering, or bathing.

To make tap water safe for use, bring the water to a rolling boil in a clean container for a full minute.

SWBNO will issue a notice when the boil water advisory is canceled. This is the sixth boil water advisory issued by the SWBNO in 2020.
