Alton Community Energized by Cleanup Day

Alton Community Energized by Cleanup Day

The St. Tammany Parish community of Alton experienced a massive clean-up effort last month that resulted in the collection and disposal of over 300 bags of trash. Keep St. Tammany Beautiful sponsored and organized the cleanup day event in conjunction with the St. Tammany Parish Department of Inspections and Enforcement, St. Tammany Parish Councilman T.J. Smith and leaders from the community of Alton. Members of the St. Tammany Parish Government staff volunteered their time in assisting Councilman Smith, 40 members of the Alton community from local churches and neighborhoods groups, Beta Club members from Alton Elementary and their sponsor, in the collaborative collection effort. The litter that was bagged and collected was hauled away by the St. Tammany Parish Litter Abatement Program, which utilizes citizens with court-mandated community service hours. Additionally, the St. Tammany Parish Department of Public Works mobilized the following work week to cut ditches and remove weeds around street signage in the area.

“We are incredibly proud of the work of Keep St. Tammany Beautiful and all the volunteers completed in the Alton Clean-up Day,” said Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President. “This a wonderful beginning to our Keep St. Tammany Beautiful chapter’s efforts to improve our quality of life, while preserving the natural beauty of our Parish. This program, and many more that Parish Government spearheads, will assure the conservation of our natural resources and keep this Parish a place where businesses want to locate, and families want to raise their children.”

Keep St. Tammany Beautiful also provided volunteers and the necessary equipment like safety vests, trash bags, gloves, grabbers and bottled water.

On November 29, 2016 at approximately 12:30 PM, a contractor hit one of Tammany Utilities (TU) water distribution lines.  To repair the line, TU has had to turn off the water to the above customers in Bedico Creek Subdivision.  As a result of the line break and subsequent pressure loss and in accordance with Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) regulations, TU is issuing a precautionary BOIL ADVISORY for the above referenced addresses serviced by this water system.

Once water service is restored and out of an abundance of caution, a precautionary BOIL ADVISORY will be in place for the customers identified above.  This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by Tammany Utilities.  It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:

Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container.  The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.  (The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.)

 

Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.

 

Tammany Utilities will rescind this BOIL ADVISORY upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health ‑ Office of Public Health that additional water samples collected from our system have shown the water to be safe.  We anticipate that the earliest the BOIL ADVISORY will be rescinded will be Thursday, December 1st.

 

Customers affected by this advisory will be advised when it is rescinded by hand delivered notices, signs placed in your neighborhood and posts to the Parish’s social media sites and webpage.  If you have any questions, please call Tammany Utilities at (985) 276-6400.

Due to the failure of a well pump, the Northridge Water System lost pressure on Thursday November 10, 2016.  As a result of the pressure loss and in accordance with Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) regulations, Tammany Utilities (TU) is issuing a precautionary BOIL ADVISORY for the above referenced subdivisions serviced by this water system.

Once water service is restored and out of an abundance of caution, a precautionary BOIL ADVISORY will be in place for the customers identified above.  This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by Tammany Utilities.  It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:

Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.

Tammany Utilities will rescind this BOIL ADVISORY upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health ‑ Office of Public Health that additional water samples collected from our system have shown the water to be safe.  Because of the Veterans Day Holiday, TU is uncertain of when the LDH laboratory will be able to return sample results.  We anticipate that the earliest the BOIL ADVISORY will be rescinded will be Saturday, November 12th and the latest, Tuesday, November 15th.

Customers affected by this advisory will be advised when it is rescinded by hand delivered notices, signs placed throughout the neighborhood and posts to the Parish’s social media sites and webpage.  If you have any questions, please call Tammany Utilities at (985) 276-6400.
