City of Jackson Update for Friday Evening

Posted on February 27, 2021


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 26, 2021

CITY OF JACKSON UPDATE FOR FRIDAY EVENING

(JACKSON, MS) – The City of Jackson is issuing the following updates for Friday, February 26, 2021, related to the impacts of recent winter weather on the City and the efforts being made:

WATER PRESSURE

  • Today, the City saw pressure levels reach around 87 psi. Progress has been made and our tanks are seeing more water today than yesterday. Areas with higher elevation will take a little longer to get full water restored.
    • 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.
  • The City Water Maintenance Department is still battling several water main breaks, which will be a key focus over the weekend. Crews are managing the volume and making progress on repairs. A complete list of confirmed, unconfirmed, and repaired water main breaks/leaks is at the end of this release. Please report any water main breaks to 311.
  • We continue to ask residents to PLEASE CONSERVE WATER during this water outage crisis. Conserving water will allow fellow Jacksonians to get back online faster.
  • The system-wide boil water notice is still in effect.
  • All water meter issues should be directed to 601-960-0762 and 601-960-0761.
