Statement Regarding Fire at O.B. Curtis Water Treatment Plant

Posted on April 30, 2021


April 30, 2021


Boil Water Notice Issued for All Surface Water Connections


Early this morning an electrical fire occurred at OB Curtis WTP. The fire was managed by the assistance of Ridgeland Fire Department and Jackson Fire Department. The fire shutdown two high service pumps and shut down the entire plant. We have an electrical contractor onsite to help assist with rewiring the high service pumps to get them back online. Once the high service pumps are back online, full power should be restored to the plant. We anticipate the plant being back online by noon today, but it could take longer if other issues are found during the recovery.


The loss of pressure in the system requires the City to issue a boil water notice for all surface water connections.
