S&WB: Marconi Drive water main repair unsuccessful, more work next week

The New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board says an attempt to repair the water main along Marconi Drive this week was unsuccessful.

Officials say during this week’s repair, workers discovered more damage along the 30-inch water main, which would require a larger repair.

The water main services the Lake Vista, Lakeshore, Lakeview and Lakewood neighborhoods.

We’re told water pressure is currently stable and a plan is in place to replace the damaged section of the pipe next week.
