NEW ORLEANS- If you're a New Orleans Sewerage and Water customer who had to boil water before using it, you're getting a break on your bill.

A broken tube led to a power outage at the main water plant Friday. The drop in pressure caused city officials to tell residents in most of the city to boil their water throughout the weekend.

Affected customers will get a two day credit on their bill because of the inconvenience.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu says he will lobby Congress for funding to repair the infrastructure for the sewerage and water board. Most of the equipment that failed was installed between 1920 and 1960.
