The New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board and the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals have issued a boil water advisory for the East Bank of New Orleans due to a drop in water pressure this morning. Residents should not drink tap water or use tap water for bathing or preparing food unless it has been brought to a rolling boil for one minute. Hand washing should be followed by use of a hand sanitizer. Extra bottled water is being brought in and will be provided to the dormitories. We anticipate this order will be lifted by early tomorrow.
