City of Jackson Update – 3/3/2021

Posted on March 3, 2021


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 3, 2021

CITY OF JACKSON UPDATE FOR WEDNESDAY EVENING

(JACKSON, MS) – The City of Jackson is issuing the following updates for Wednesday, March 3, 2021, related to the ongoing water crisis and recovery efforts being made as a result of recent winter weather:

WATER RESTORATION

  • Today we experienced some setbacks at the OB Curtis WTP. We found that our raw water screens were not operating properly as a result of debris blocking the flow of water. We had to shut down a portion of the plant in order to allow outside contractors to clean out the debris and blockage. In that process, we also found an electrical issue that was addressed.
  • The good news is that the raw water screens are now functioning, the plant is now back online and water is flowing again. Now, we just need to build pressure back up and recoup the lost gains from earlier this week.
  • As a result of today’s setback, it is likely that many residents who had seen their water restored, are now again experiencing low or no water pressure. However, they should see it restored again once pressure is built back up in the system. We currently estimate 25% of our 43K surface water connections are possibly experiencing low or now water pressure.
    • We are gauging progress by measuring the psi (pounds per square inch) in the water distribution system. The goal is to reach around 90 psi at OB Curtis WTP and around 80 psi at JH Fewell WTP. Today’s reading is up from 37 psi when the cold front came through resulting in water outages throughout the City of Jackson and City of Byram.
  • Our teams continue to make good progress working down the list of water main breaks/leaks. A total of 100 water main breaks/ leaks have been reported throughout the City. As of tonight, we have completed 64 repairs. Of the 36 outstanding, eight (8) have been confirmed and MS 811 Locate requested. A detailed list is at the end of this release. Please continue to report any water main breaks/leaks to 311.
  • The system-wide precautionary boil water notice is still in effect.
  • PLEASE CONSERVE WATER during this water outage crisis. Limit water usage to the necessities. Conserving water will allow fellow Jacksonians to get back online faster.
  • All water meter issues should be directed to 601-960-0762 and 601-960-0761.

WATER DISTRIBUTION

  • NON-POTABLE (FLUSHING) WATER will be available at the following locations on Thursday, March 4th from 9am to 6pm. Residents should bring containers.

WSBA BILLING ADJUSTMENTS FOR REPAIRS

  • To qualify for a leak adjustment, simply bring a copy of your plumbing receipt or a receipt for parts purchased to the Applications Counter at WSBA.  One of our customer services representatives will be happy to assist you.  Please call 601-960-2000 for any additional information.
