City of Jackson Update for Tuesday Evening

Posted on February 23, 2021


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 23, 2021

CITY OF JACKSON UPDATE FOR TUESDAY EVENING

(JACKSON, MS) – The City of Jackson is issuing the following updates for Tuesday, February 23, 2021, related to the impacts of recent winter weather on the City and efforts being made:

WATER PRESSURE

  • Low and no water pressure is still impacting residents across Jackson, but we are continuing to see progress. The City anticipates that with pressures gaining each day, a majority of the City will see their water restored by the end of the week. We are cautious with this prediction due to possible water main breaks delaying restorative efforts. We are encouraged with the efforts of our water personnel and the response from the water system to date.
  • Another system-wide precautionary boil water notice was issued today due to high turbidity (cloudiness) in the water.
  • We are gauging progress by measuring the psi (pounds per square inch) in the water distribution system. Today, the City’s pressure is up to 80 psi. This is good. We are working to sustain it and residents should begin to see improvements in water pressure soon.
    • That is up from 67 psi yesterday and 37 psi when the cold front came through resulting in water outages throughout the City of Jackson and City of Byram.
    • The goal is to reach around 90 psi at OB Curtis WTP and around 80 psi at JH Fewell WTP.
  • We continue to work to assess and coordinate water main break repairs. The City encourages residents to report any water main breaks to 311.
  • CONFIRMED WATER MAIN BREAKS – This list has been located via MS 811 and checked by a water maintenance supervisor. These have not been repaired as of 2/23
