For Immediate Release:
August 24, 2022
(Jackson, Miss.) – The City of Jackson remains under a boil water advisory until it is able to conduct two days of clear test samples. Due to the consecutive days of heavy rainfall, the City has been unable to conduct sampling. We are hopeful to resume sampling this weekend – weather permitting.
The advisory that remains in effect is unrelated to turbidity. Out of 240 samples taken, two samples did not meet the testing threshold. We continue to devote all of our resources to lifting the boil water advisory and will keep the media updated as soon as new information is available.
Meanwhile, the City will continue to offer water distribution sites on a daily basis for residents in need. Please visit the City’s website or social media platforms for more information.
