LaPlace Residents Asked to Minimize Discharge into Wastewater System

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISH – Parish officials have located a break at the main LaPlace Wastewater Lift Station near the Percy Hebert Building. Utilities and Fleming Construction are currently working on repairing the break and repairs are anticipated to be completed sometime Wednesday night.

In an effort to maintain the heavily-utilized system, LaPlace residents are being asked to conserve water until further notice by limiting the amount of discharge placed into the wastewater system. Activities such as washing clothes, running dishwashers, flushing toilets, and all other activities that discharge into the collection system should be limited until further notice. Taking showers and baths are not included in the conservation measures.

NOTE: DRINKING WATER IS NOT AFFECTED. The St. John Parish water system is not impacted and water is safe for consumption. Thank you for your cooperation as crews work as quickly as possible.
