WATER GRADUALLY RETURNING TO FAUCETS; BOIL WATER NOTICE REMAINS IN PLACE
JACKSON, Miss– The City of Jackson is seeing progress in stabilizing the water system, but remains under a citywide boil water notice for all surface connections.
Water pressure has increased in the last couple of days and was between 78 to 80 psi as of Wednesday morning. City officials are working to get the pressure to around 85 to 90 psi to improve pressure in South and West Jackson that may still have low water pressure.
The City awaits authorization from the state Health Department to hopefully begin sampling later today.
