Water main break causes street flooding in Mid-City

The New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board had crews working on the break Sunday night.

NEW ORLEANS – Residents in Mid-City are experiencing street flooding on Sunday night after a water main broke. 

The break, according to viewers who sent photos to Eyewitness News, occurred at North Rendon and Banks Street.

 


 

Eyewitness News reached out to the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board about the main break as heavy rain is expected overnight. 

A spokesperson from the Sewerage and Water Board initially stated in an email, "We'll check on it." About an hour later the spokesperson stated a crew was in the 3300 block of Banks Street working to repair a 12-inch water main. 

Viewers later sent in photos of the crews out on the scene later Sunday night.
