(JACKSON, Miss.) – As of this morning, a temporary pump has been installed at the TV Road Well. The TV Road Well is back online and adding additional water into the Jackson Maddox Well System while repair work continues to install a new pump at the Siwell Road Well.
The Siwell Road Well will remain offline as work continues over the next few days with an anticipated completion of Thursday, June 10, 2021, weather permitting. The temporary pump at TV Road will help, however, residents in the impacted areas, particularly those at higher elevations, can still expect disruptions in their service until all repairs are complete.
A precautionary boil water notice is in effect for the impacted areas and will remain in place until the repairs at the Siwell Road are completed and two days of testing are approved by the Mississippi State Department of Health.
The Jackson Maddox Well System is comprised of six wells and serves approximately 16K well water connections primarily in South Jackson and the City of Byram. It is estimated that approximately 2,000 connections have been impacted by recent disruptions at the Siwell Road and TV Road wells. We continue to ask that residents on the Jackson Maddox Well System continue to conserve water to lessen the burden on their neighbors.
