Emergency water line repair could impact hundreds in CBD and Garden District overnight


NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — On Tuesday night, the Sewage and Water Board announced it would be conducting an emergency water line repair near Claiborne Avenue and Octavia Street in Uptown.

SWBNO tweeted crews would be closing down a 30-inch water main around 10 p.m. for an overnight repair.

The main supplements water to the Central Business and Garden districts in New Orleans, which could result in these customers having lower water pressure than normal. The SWB says that people living on the upper floors of multi-story buildings could see the most impact in during the repair.

Crews will be continuously monitoring water pressure during the repair, however, SWBNO reminds customers who experience little to no water pressure to call the Emergency Call Center at 504-52-WATER (92837). The hotline is open 24/7.
