 CITY OF JACKSON UPDATE FOR TUESDAY EVENING

(JACKSON, MS) – The City of Jackson is issuing the following updates for Tuesday, March 2, 2021, related to the ongoing water crisis and the recovery efforts being made as a result of recent winter weather:

WATER RESTORATION

  • Good progress was made today. Teams completed repairs on several water main breaks and restored water to residents in the City of Byram that are on the surface system. While we are not yet through this crisis, many areas throughout the city have had water restored. We continue to focus our efforts on West and South Jackson which sit at higher elevations.
  • Today’s psi was in the 80s. Again, this is better than where we were, but we continue to make efforts toward reaching and maintaining a consistent 90psi.
    • 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.
  • Another key focus now is filling our water tanks to an optimal level so that we can begin sampling and ultimately making determinations on when we can start removing boil water notices.
  • A total of 99 water main breaks/ leaks have been reported throughout the City. As of tonight, we have completed 59 repairs. Of the 32 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.

  • NON-POTABLE (FLUSHING) WATER will be available at the following locations again on Wednesday, March 3rd from 9am to 2pm. Residents should bring containers.
