Water Conservation Measures Issued for East Bank Residents

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

As a result of two significant water leaks in Reserve and LaPlace, all east bank residents must conserve water and refrain from non-essential uses until further notice.

The St. John the Baptist Parish Utilities Department is working on repairing the water leaks as quickly as possible. While repairs are made, residents will experience lower-than-normal water pressure.

It is critical that all residents in LaPlace, Reserve, Garyville, and Mount Airy begin conserving water immediately. Refrain from washing clothes, running dishwashers, watering lawns, washing vehicles, and all other activities that require using large quantities of water. Back-up water supply is in place and all towers are filled in the event of an emergency.

As conditions change, additional information will be provided. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation. For more information or for water conservation tips please visit or visit Channel 15.
