Officials of the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans and Entergy New Orleans will appear before a special meeting of the City Council's Utilities and Public Works Committees to discuss the recent Boil Water Advisory issued by Sewerage and Water Board late last week. The special meeting will be held on Thursday, July 30, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. in the City Council Chamber.
Councilmember Williams said, "The people of New Orleans, visitors, tourists, hotels, restaurants, bars and other businesses alike were all understandably frustrated by last week's boil water advisory called by the Sewerage and Water Board Friday, July 24, 2015 that lasted until midday Saturday, July 25, 2015. The lack of communication, inconvenience, and potential threat to public health will not go unquestioned. As the Chair of the Utilities Committee and President of the Council, I feel we owe it to the people of the City to get answers."
