The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) is closely monitoring Tropical Storm Sally.
Currently, 98 of 99 drainage pumps are available for service. As of last night, the drainage pump at Drainage Pump Station 13 in Algiers that was under repair is now back in service. One drainage pump, located at a drainage pump station on Grant Street in New Orleans East is out of service pending electrical repairs. It is a small, 70 cfs (cubic feet per second) pump. We expect to have it repaired by tomorrow. But we know there is a chance for heavy rainfall before the repair is made.
