Belle Terre Blvd. Water Line Replacements

--During the course of the next three weeks, the St. John Utilities Department will be replacing three (3) 12 inch water lines to accommodate the Department of Transportation and Development’s LA 3188 (Belle Terre Blvd.) Drainage Project.

 

All water customers located from 110 Belle Terre Blvd. to 299 Belle Terre Blvd. in Laplace, including the Shopping Centers and Walmart, will be affected by the Utilities work. To be of as little inconvenience as possible, St. John Parish has scheduled the work to place overnight, weather permitting. Dates and times of work are as follows:

 

  • Tuesday, September 12, 2017 – 10:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, September 19, 2017 – 10:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, September 26, 2017 – 10:00 p.m.

 

Please be advised that during the repairs, residents and businesses in the above mentioned addresses will have little to no water pressure for 4 to 6 hours from the anticipated start time.  

 

As a precaution, all customers who lost water pressure will be immediately under a Boil Water Advisory until further notice. The Utilities Department will lift the Boil Water Advisory each week upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health that the water samples collected from the area are safe.

 

When under a Boil Water Advisory, It is recommended that all affected customers disinfect their water before consuming it or using it for food preparation by boiling water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.

 

You will be notified when the Boil Water Advisory is lifted via the Parish’s Mass Emergency Notification System. If you are not signed up, please visit sjbparish.com and click “Stay Connected” to register with your physical address.

 

Thank you for your patience as we work to make improvements in this area. If you have any additional questions, please contact the St. John Utilities Department at 985-651-6800 during business hours.
