This includes the following areas in southeast Louisiana: Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Eastern Orleans, Iberville, Livingston, Lower Jefferson, Lower Lafourche, Lower Plaquemines, Lower St. Bernard, and Lower Terrebonne.

Tank Overflow Update – 4/12/21

To Magnolia Water residents,

As of Saturday, April 10 at 2 p.m. the tank overflow issue has been resolved.

Public Notice: 3/22/21 Sewer System Smoke Check For Country Rivers Estates

To All Residents and Occupants of the Country Rivers Estates:

Magnolia Water Utility Operating Company will be conducting smoke testing of the sanitary sewer system on Monday, March 22, 2021 at approximately 8:00am.

This study will involve the opening and entering of manholes in the streets and public utility easements. An important task of the testing will be to locate breaks and defects in the sewer system. The smoke will also reveal sources of where storm and other surface water enter the sewer system. A special non-toxic smoke will be used in these tests.

The smoke is manufactured for this purpose, leaves no residuals, or stains, and has no effect on plant or animal life. The smoke has a distinctive--but not unpleasant--odor. Visibility and odor last only a few minutes, where there is adequate ventilation. Because the plumbing appliances in your house or building are connected to the sanitary sewer system, some smoke may enter your home or place of business if the:

  • Vents connected to your building's sewer pipes are inadequate, defective, or improperly installed.
  • Traps under sinks, tubs, basins, showers, and other drains are dry, defective, improperly installed, or missing.
  • Pipes, connections, and seals of the wastewater drain system in and under your buildings are damaged, defective, have plugs missing, or are improperly installed.

All residents are advised that if traces of this smoke or its odor enter your house or building, it is an indication that gases and odors from the sewer could also enter. These can be both unpleasant and dangerous, as well as a health risk to any occupants. Should smoke enter your home or business, you may contact a local plumber for guidance on repairs. The plumber will be able to help and check with you as to where the smoke has entered your home or building. Location, identification, and correction of the source of smoke that enters your home or building is urgently advised.

Your cooperation will be appreciated. The information gained from this testing will be used to improve your sewer services and may reduce the eventual cost to our utility customers. Should you have any questions on this matter, please contact our Customer Service at 1-855-643-8152.

Regarding Sediment and Water Quality Issues in Guste Island   

A few weeks ago, we at Magnolia Water Utility Operating Company acquired the water and wastewater assets of Guste Island Utilities. As the new owners of these services, we are keenly aware of the issues with sediment and discolored water throughout the system. We met with leaders from the home owners associations, regulators and water quality experts to fully understand the extent of this issue from all perspectives.

There are changes being implemented immediately; multiple long-term solutions are being vetted as well. These include:

  1. Installation of additional, automated flush valves (week of January 18, 2021)
  2. Review and refinement of current flushing plan – while efforts have been made in the past to implement flushing as a solution, we’ve found that the frequency, length of time, and methods of flushing needed adjustment. We’ll continue evaluating and adjusting the plan as we learn more
  3. Water Source Evaluation:  We are currently evaluating the source of the water and initial distribution method(s) to identify all causes of sediment in the water.

We are committed to resolve this issue and equally committed to keep our customers informed of our progress in that effort. Thank you all for keeping the lines of communications open and continuing to work with us towards safe, reliable and environmentally sustainable water services for years to come.

  • Previous Balance Due: The amount of unpaid previous charges as of the date of the current bill.

We are always being told to flush our lines because of the brown sediment water we get, so it is hard not to get a big bill.
