Water system update: Tuesday, September 27

Posted on September 27, 2022

For Immediate Release:

September 27, 2022
(Jackson, Miss.) – The O.B. Curtis Water Plant remained at steady pressure overnight and is currently operating at 88 PSI. We are continuing to experience significant water leaks throughout system. Crews are responding to leaks throughout the City and will continue to prioritize repairs to protect the storage tanks. Repairs yesterday and this morning have allowed the Suncrest and Elaine tanks to recover. All tanks currently have strong overhead storage margins.
Repairs to a water leak yesterday on Gary Road stabilized the well system and the well system tanks have recovered this morning. Forest Hill High School has restored pressure.
Overall water production is now at a stable level at the O.B. Curtis plant. This continues to help the plant maintain pressure in spite of the significant leaks that are developing in system. This type of ability to increase production through challenges is the redundancy that the team has been working toward. Work continues at both the O.B. Curtis and J.H. Fewell Water Plant each day.
A large group of EMAC (Emergency Management Assistance Compact) teams are supplementing O.B. Curtis and J.H. Fewell staff with assistance from the Mississippi Rural Water Association. The teams at OB Curtis and JH Fewell are from Maryland, Arkansas, Minnesota and South Carolina. These teams include operators, electricians, mechanics, instrument technicians and maintenance personnel.
The following areas are under a precautionary boil water advisory. These advisories are due to water main leak repairs. The following streets are affected:
