"The bad news is that's presenting problems of its own".

The temporary measure was put in place because of a loss of pressure in the distribution system due to an "extremely high number of water line breaks caused by hard freeze", say authorities.

The reason for the shutdown is not apparent as residents and businesses around the Tower have water, albeit at a low pressure.

He said parish officials realize that many residents need to run water in order to keep their pipes from freezing, but that the request had to be made to keep the water system functioning at full capacity.

The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals and the Jefferson Parish Water Department issued the boil water advisory on Thursday and expect the restoration process to take at least two to three days. At Satsuma restaurant in New Orleans, "We get all our biggest stock pots and start boiling water, so we have clean water that we can wash vegetables and wash our hands with", said co-owner Mike Costantini.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu said city facilities and schools in New Orleans would remain closed for a third day.

Officials hope to have the water system fully restored by Monday. Once city officials and property owners find the leaks and shut off water service for repairs, pressure will build up.

The advisory will be in effect until further notice.

Restrooms are mostly closed at Armstrong International Airport in Kenner, which is still experiencing low water pressure.
