Riverlands Area Drainage Improvements Project Update

The Riverlands Area Drainage Improvements project is underway in the Riverlands neighborhood and is expected to last approximately 5 months. As part of the project, BLD Services will be rerouting a waterline to install new drainage pumps.

Due to this construction, residents who live on the streets stated below in the Riverlands area will lose water for approximately 8 hours from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

• 500-533 Rienzi
• 500-536 Chatsworth

BLD Services will work as efficiently as possible to get this project completed and the water restored in a timely manner. When the water system is restored, residents will be under a Boil Water Advisory until test results are received from the Department of Health and Hospitals. Residents will be notified when water services are restored and when the Boil Water Advisory has been lifted. Please listen for telephone messages and tune into Channel 15 or log on to www.sjbparish.com for more information.
