Post-Storm Notice to the Public:

There is a parishwide curfew from 6 p.m. – 6 a.m. until Monday, Sept. 6, 2021. The public is urged to not be on the streets at night, as there are multiple downed power lines and debris throughout the parish. Jefferson Parish officials will assess damages and keep the public informed when it is safe to go out.

Generator Safety:

Jefferson Parish reminds residents that carbon monoxide from generators is deadly. Only use a generator in a well-ventilated area and place away from structures, at least 20 feet away from your home, windows and doors. Carbon monoxide poisoning was among the leading causes of death during storm events in 2020.

Water & Sewer:

The boil-water advisory for the West Bank of Jefferson Parish has been lifted excluding Grand Isle. It remains in place for the rest of the parish. This boil-water advisory will remain in effect until rescinded by the Jefferson Parish Water Department. Due to widespread power outages throughout Jefferson Parish, which has put a strain on the process of powering the sewerage systems, Jefferson Parish residents are asked to limit all non-essential sewer services as much as possible during this time – this includes washing clothes, cleaning dishes and showering. Residents can continue using their essential sewer services, such as using the bathroom.

Garbage and Recycling Collection:

Curbside trash collection of bagged, household garbage placed in tipper carts only will resume Monday, Sept. 6, 2021. The collection will occur on a limited basis, as driver’s return, downed power lines are cleared, and areas become assessable. Due to the severity of the storm, there will be delays in collection, and pick-up may not occur on your normal collection.

Thompson Consultants, a debris monitoring firm, is hiring monitors to work with trucks and crews that will be staged throughout the parish neighborhoods to assist with the debris recovery process. These individuals ensure that all work performed is in accordance with guidelines and all applicable Federal laws and regulations related to the debris removal process. Interested candidates should call 407-376-5857.

Jefferson Transit Service:

Jefferson Parish Transit is providing residents with the help they need to get essential resources following Hurricane Ida.

Starting Tuesday, Jefferson Parish Transit is launching a fare-free bus service on limited routes. These routes will run Monday through Sunday between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Water Usage

There is a boil-water advisory in Terrebonne Parish until further notice.

Public Works officials report that there are more sewer lift stations in the parish (180-plus) than there are generators to power them at this time.

You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

As a result, lift stations are overflowing presenting a serious public health threat. TPCG Pollution Control workers are running from sewer lift station to lift station to energize the electric pump with a portable generator in order to move effluent toward the sewer treatment facility.

Officials are asking residents to limit water usage in their homes in order to minimize this situation. With the restoration of electricity in the parish, sewer lift stations will operate normally.

The message now: Please limit water usage (sinks, showers, toilets, etc.) to help relieve this problem.

Water and Sewerage:

EAST BANK:

The Dalcour Water Plant is back in service. The East Pointe a la Hache water plant is online and producing water. This means there is water service from Bohemia to White Ditch. However, a boil-water advisory remains in effect from Bohemia to White Ditch.

WEST BANK:

The Belle Chasse Water Plant (BCWP) which only services the Westbank is online and producing water. However, there are major leaks in the Ironton area. These leaks are preventing water flow from Ironton to Tide Water Road in Venice. Parish crews and Inframark are currently working to resolve our Ironton leak issues.

Gov. John Bel Edwards has granted the Parish’s request for two large generators to be airlifted to both the Port Sulphur and the Boothville water plants, which will provide a temporary source of water from Port Sulphur to Tidewater Road in Venice until the Ironton leaks are repaired. One of those generators was flown to the Port Sulphur water plant and installed Sunday, Sept. 5.

The system was put into service Sunday evening, and it was discovered on Monday, Sept 6, that there was a significant loss of pressure and supply due to additional leaks in the area. The system is now out of service until repairs are made to broken water lines. PPG and Inframark are currently working on place two generators at the old Boothville Water Plant to draw water from the river and produce it from that facility in hopes to supplying the southern portion of the Westbank of Plaquemines Parish. Please be patient and remember that there will be a boil water advisory in place once water is restored.

Potable water was delivered to the Port Sulphur Fire Station and Buras Fire Station for use by our residents. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CONTAINERS. Even though we are making considerable progress getting our lift stations powered, we continue to ask residents to limit the amount of water going into the sewer system. Please continue to monitor the use of laundry facilities, dishwashers, bathing, and flushing usage.

Substantial progress has been made dewatering the Braithwaite area, and several streets in Braithwaite Park are now dry. However, residents are encouraged not to return until the area is completely dewatered. Please be reminded that there is no electrical power of water servicing the area. Contractors are actively conducting levee repairs due to scouring in the Braithwaite area today.

WEST BANK:

Highway 23 from Ironton to just south of the IMT Coal Plant remains flooded but is passable with large trucks. The parish and its contractors have rocked 15-plus miles of the Mississippi River levee to convoy residents and relief aid to the currently inaccessible areas of Port Sulphur to Venice. Additional pumps have been deployed to the Wilkinson Pump Station to further enhance the dewatering of Highway 23.

MARINE TRAFFIC

Empire river flood gate remains closed, until further notice per DOTD. Empire Flood gate at Bay Adams is currently open. The Plaquemines Port Harbor and Terminal District is operational and assisting the Parish and PPSO with emergency response.
