Residents Asked to Minimize Discharge into Wastewater System
Tuesday, April 27, 2015
ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISH – St. John Parish is currently experiencing widespread power outages due to the recent severe weather event. As a result of the extensive power outages and power line damage, St. John residents specifically in the areas of Cambridge to the St. John/St. Charles Parish line, Garyville and Lucy, are being asked to conserve water until further notice by limiting the amount of discharge placed into the wastewater system.
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.
