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  This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by Tammany Utilities.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  We anticipate that the earliest the BOIL ADVISORY will be rescinded will be Thursday, December 1st.

PRECAUTIONARY BOIL ADVISORY Countryside, Eagle Landing, Northridge Estates, and Spring Lakes Subdivisions Northridge Water System (PWS 1103181)

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  This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by Tammany Utilities.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:

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.  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.

 

 

St. Tammany Parish Officials Address Traffic Concerns on LA Hwy 22 in Madisonville

St. Tammany Parish officials announced today that long-standing traffic challenges on Louisiana Highway 22 in Madisonville are set to be addressed beginning Monday, November 21, 2016. The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) in cooperation with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD), will implement a temporary drawbridge opening schedule and traffic study. The Madisonville drawbridge will remain closed during the week, at 8 a.m., 5 pm., and 6p.m. and open on the hour for the remainder of the day through 7p.m. It will open on signal between 7p.m. – 6a.m. On weekends, the bridge will open every hour from 6 a.m. -7p.m.  At the same time, three separate traffic studies will begin at the intersection of Main Street and Louisiana Highway 22 (Mulberry Street), including the installation of a traffic signal in lieu of a four-way stop sign.

These temporary changes are part of a plan to determine what permanent solutions to traffic challenges — both marine and automobile— will ultimately be implemented. “It is gratifying to me to see agencies working together to face challenges in our community,” said Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President. “It is through these collaborative efforts that we find lasting solutions. While these measures are temporary, they are part of a bigger effort to permanently resolve this problem. We appreciate the patience of motorists and mariners as we work on this issue.”

“For District 4, this traffic is a concern that residents have brought to me since the start of my term as their Councilman,” said Mike Lorino, St. Tammany Parish Councilman, District 4. “I would like to thank the USCG, the LADOTD, Senator Jack Donahue, Representatives Schroder and Falconer, and Mayor Pelloat for their enduring efforts to begin to find solutions through working together. And I would like to thank residents and boaters, in advance, for their patience as we work toward a permanent solution. We realize that everyone is affected, and we will do our best to find an all-encompassing resolution. ”

“I am very excited about the new temporary closure times for the Madisonville Bridge.  This change is designed to improve traffic flow through the Town of Madisonville during peak drive-time hours without a significant impact on our river boaters,” said Jean Pelloat, Mayor of Madisonville. “I am equally pleased with the three planned studies to be conducted over the next several months in cooperation with St. Tammany Parish Government, LADOTD, our State representatives and the USCG. I would like to thank everyone who has been working so diligently to improve the traffic flow through our community and trust that the upcoming studies will produce a permanent solution that will be embraced by both land transportation and water vessel traffic.”

The deviation in the drawbridge schedule will run through May of 2017, and the traffic studies will occur during the same timeframe.
