EAST BANK? The Sewerage & Water Board ruined urns of freshly brewed Iced Tea across the East Bank of New Orleans today, warning residents not to drink, or even bathe in the water without boiling it first.

Neither officials with the S&WB nor the Mayors office have said why there was a delay in notifying the public at this time. [Gambit,]
