Noise at SWB Carrollton plant

If you’re on Twitter, follow @swbNewOrleans and @NOLAReady for updates. SWB is getting much better about sending out tweets.

The noise is from the EMDs. SWB adds generators for backup power. I hear it loud and clear and I’m up on Dublin near Birch, so I know that it’s much, much louder for people closer to the plant. To me, it sounds like frantic desperation, really, a struggling system. And it also sounds like a space sci-fi creature.

From 2/16: “Today we’re prepping for upcoming wet weather by testing our EMDs. We know the noise is an inconvenience for neighbors around the Carrollton Plant. We appreciate your patience & understanding while we continue to work to improve our system.”

From 2/14: “To our neighbors near the Carrollton Water Plant, over the next few days, there will be work taking place on equipment at the plant. Residents may notice increased noise during this time. Additionally, looking ahead to the rain chances tomorrow, we anticipate running the EMDs. We appreciate your patience and understanding.”
