Residents Asked to Minimize Discharge into Wastewater System

Monday, October 26, 2015

Following heavy rainfall and infiltration, the wastewater system is operating at maximum capacity throughout the Parish.

St. John residents are being asked to minimize the amount of discharge placed into the wastewater system in an effort to prevent overflows. 

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. 

The St. John Parish water system is not impacted and water is safe for consumption.

Thank you for your cooperation.
