The boil water notice for all City of Jackson water customers HAS BEEN LIFTED.
   

Water system update: Wednesday, September 7

Posted on September 7, 2022


All storage tanks have stable water levels; no tanks are reporting low at this time.
(Jackson, Miss.) – The O.B. Curtis Water Plant remained at a steady pressure over the past 24 hours and is currently working at 87 PSI. Significant gains were made overnight in the overhead storage tanks. We have restored the margin that had been depleted Monday. All storage tanks have stable water levels; no tanks are reporting low at this time.
Yesterday, the membrane plant increased production by over 2 million gallons from the day before. This is the type of capacity increase the team has been working toward. The four filters in operation on the conventional side are now able to be controlled from the operations room instead of manually by a staff member. This is significant to giving the operators the control needed to improve water production. Repairs to high service pumps that deliver pressure and water to the city were made yesterday, and continue today. Restoration of the Ammonia water line is occurring today. This will help improve water quality in the distribution system.
Two plant operators at the O.B. Curtis plant were issued provisional Class A Water Operator licenses by the Department of Health yesterday. This increases the number of licensed Class A Operators at O.B. Curtis to 4.
Investigative sampling continues today to monitor water quality. The investigative samples from yesterday were better than anticipated, but at this time the distribution system is not ready for full sampling to clear the boil water notice. This is contingent upon sustained pressure. We will need two rounds of clear samples to be able to remove the boil water notice.
If you are experiencing discolored water or no pressure, please report using this tool https://arcg.is/0LDmjb. This will allow us to track any remaining issues and address them. We are currently monitoring this information to respond as needed.
