Residents of New Orleans, the City is working to clean up a sewer leak that occurred this week in the area of River Ridge. Repairs are underway and the culprit was a 24 inch force main. The force main has a primary function of transporting wastewater from a pump to a discharge point. Because of this, the City will have alternate driving routes available while crews are fixing the damage to the pipeline. River Ridge area residents should use alternate routes such as Jefferson Highway when traveling east or west. Residents in the 1700 block of Generes Drive and higher should use Sauve Road. Residents in the 1600 block of Generes Drive and lower should exit to Hickory Avenue in the 1100 block. In addition to this, officials want to remind residents that drinking water is not affected by the issue. Tap water in all areas of Jefferson Parish, including River Ridge, is safe for consumption and all other normal uses.
