Ida update: About 80% of Terrebonne now has water service, officials say. Here's a map.
About 80% to 85% of Terrebonne's customers have water service, the parish's water district said today.
"The water pressure may not be at 100% due to numerous leaks in the system, but there is water," Waterworks District 1 said.
All of the parish remains under a boil-water advisory.
"Power has been restored to the Schriever Water Plant, which means that personnel there can begin water testing," the district said Wednesday. "If the water meets stringent standards, the boil water order may be lifted soon. In the meantime, continue to boil water for drinking until further notice."
The attached map indicates what areas should have service. The green areas should have water service. The orange indicates areas where crews are working restore service.
If you have an elevated home, you may not have water upstairs, but you could possibly have some water coming from a ground floor spigot, district officials said via Facebook. The pressure may not be good enough to get the water upstairs.
If you observe any water leaks, call 879-2495 or send a message via the district's Facebook page.
"Please continue to conserve water until we have the system fully operating at normal pressure," the district said. "Thank you for your patience. Our crews are working diligently to restore water service to 100% of our parish."
