Emergency water use restriction issued for Jackson residents

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — The City of Jackson issued an emergency water use restriction for all residents who get their water from the city’s system.

City officials are asking residents to limit indoor water use as much as possible. They area also asking customers to eliminate nonessential uses of water. Residents might see low pressure during this time period.

Below is a list of some nonessential water uses:

  • The use of hoses, sprinklers or other means for sprinkling or watering of shrubbery, trees, lawns, grass, plants, vines, gardens, vegetables, flowers or other vegetation
  • The use of water for washing automobiles, trucks, trailers, trailer houses or other type of mobile equipment
  • The washing of streets, driveways, parking lots, service station aprons, office buildings, exterior of homes, sidewalks, apartments or other outdoor surfaces
  • The operation of an ornamental fountain or other structures making a similar use of water
