City leaders discuss citywide boil water advisory



JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — Due to the recent losses in water pressure, the City of Jackson Water/Sewer Utilities Division has issued a precautionary boil water advisory until further notice for the entire drinking water system.

City officials said this includes customers served by the surface water and back-up well system.

All customers are advised to boil their drinking water until adequate pressure is restored to the system.

City officials said this does not mean that your water is unsafe, but it does mean that you must take precaution and boil your water before use.

Residents will be notified immediately when the advisory is lifted.
