east bank water now supposedly potable

Oct 6, 2005 by

Mayor C. Ray Nagin today announced that safe drinking water has been restored to New Orleans’ East Bank, west of the Industrial Canal. The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, the official regulatory agency for the State of Louisiana, certified the water quality.

As someone on LiveJournal said, “That’s impressive if it’s true, since it’s been at least 50 years since there was ever *any* safe drinking water in New Orleans!”
