RESERVE — The good news came via press release at 10:08 a.m. Sunday (Jan. 21).

Courtesy of St. John the Baptist Parish Government, the Boil Water Advisory for Edgard, Reserve and Garyville has been lifted.

All Boil Water Advisories have been lifted Parishwide, the statement went on to say, adding residents can resume normal water use.

An extended period of freezing temperatures that began Tuesday night led to more than 200 reported leaks from broken pipes and backflow preventers that pushed local water systems over capacity. The result was water pressure concerns locally and across Southeast Louisiana.
