Reserve Residents Remain Under Conservation Measures

Reserve Residents Remain Under Conservation Measures

Friday, January 11, 2013 – 4:50 p.m.

Residents in the Reserve area are being asked to continue to conserve water by limiting the amount of discharge placed into the wastewater system.  Weather conditions delayed repairs to the wastewater line; however, crews are continuing to work on the line to make the necessary repairs.  Progress has been made on the line; however, repairs are still being made.

Once repairs are complete, residents will be notified of the conservation measures being lifted via FirstCall.

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 as a result of the leak in the wastewater line, and water is safe for consumption.
