Jackson business loses business after water line damaged

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – A Jackson business owner says his restaurant hasn’t had water for over three days.

However, Jackson officials say this time, it’s not the city’s fault.

Nathan Glenn owns three restaurants in Jackson.

He tells us that water pressure at The Feathered Cow was low Friday, October 8, 2016 and then turned off around 6:00 p.m.

Glenn did not open his business for the next three days.

That means he lost out on traffic from the fair, and his employees didn’t get paid.

A construction company hit the line, according to Jackson officials and the water was turned off.

“And at that point we called the city; we saw there was a water main break in the area. They said that they were working on it, they couldn’t give me a specific time. So, at that point, I had to make the call to send the staff home, do the best we could,” said Glenn.

Buford Plumbing was apparently responsible for repairing the line.

Glenn tells us that the city has confirmed water will be back on tomorrow morning.

But Glenn faced a financial setback and he is working with accountants, legal, and insurance teams to see how he can take action for damages.
