(Jackson, Miss.) – The O.B. Curtis Water Plant remained at a steady pressure over the past 24 hours and is currently working at 88 PSI. All tanks are currently maintaining good margins for overhead storage and made gains overnight. Pressure should still be stable throughout city.
Overall water production continues to improve. Yesterday, the membrane plant production remained steady and the conventional side increased significantly. The team continues to work to increase production capacity.
The repaired raw water pump #4 has arrived at the plant. It has been placed back on the pump platform by crane this morning. Work is ongoing to place the raw water pump back in service.
Investigative sampling will continue to monitor water quality. At this time the distribution system is not ready for full sampling to clear the boil water notice. We will continue to evaluate when full sampling can begin. This is contingent upon sustained pressure. We will need two rounds of clear samples to be able to remove the boil water notice.
