UPDATE REGARDING FIRE AT O.B. CURTIS

 

(JACKSON, MS) – We had another good night at O.B. Curtis WTP. City pressure is up around 85 psi, tanks are filling and we are looking forward to continued improvement. There still may be some isolated areas at higher elevation in South Jackson experiencing low or no water pressure, but overall, that should improve as we see tanks continue to fill over the next day.

 

Two consecutive days of water samples have been delivered to the Mississippi State Department of Health and we are awaiting results. For now, a boil water notice remains in effect for all surface water connections.
