The St. John the Baptist Parish Utilities Department will begin testing the connection of the LaPlace water system to the St. Charles Parish water system on Wednesday, November 20 and will continue through Thursday, November 21. This work was previously scheduled for last week. This connection will allow the LaPlace water system to receive approximately 1 million gallons of water per day from St. Charles Parish in the event of an emergency in the Ruddock Water System.
As a result of the system testing, water customers in LaPlace and Reserve may experience a fluctuation in water pressure through Thursday, November 21. Please call 985-651-6800 to report any issues or concerns during this testing process.
