 Preventive Maintenance Scheduled for Ruddock Water Well #2

Thursday, March 6, 2014

Preventive maintenance is scheduled for Ruddock Water Well #2 Friday night, March 7. All East Bank residents and businesses

should begin conserving water Friday evening around 6:00 p.m. until further notice. Contingencies are in place for this process, but conservation is a critical component to the success of this project.

All LaPlace, Reserve, Garyville, and Mount Airy residents and businesses should refrain from non-essential uses of water such as washing clothes, running dishwashers, watering lawns, washing vehicles, and all other activities that require using large quantities of water. Expect water pressure to be approximately 20 pounds below normal. These conditions will remain in place for approximately 48 hours while the work is completed.

For questions or concerns, please contact the St. John Parish Utilities Department at 985-651-6800 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Call 9-1-1 after hours.

Additional communications will be released as needed. Please refer to the Parish website, St. John TV, facebook or twitter for additional information.
