JXN Water Issues Boil Water Notice for Surface Water System Due to Widespread Outages Caused By Loss of Power

JACKSON, Miss. – JXN Water has issued a systemwide precautionary boil water advisory that will be in effect for the surface water system starting Friday, May 10, 2024, until lifted.

Customers who are supplied water from the well system – about 6,000 connections – are not affected.

At approximately 7 a.m. power was restored at O.B. Curtis Water Treatment Plant. “It will take many hours for the system to recover and some places may take longer,” said Ted Henifin, JXN Water interim third-party manager.

Customers are asked to continue to conserve water until further notice. The systemwide issue is known and there is no need to report pressure issues to Customer Care at this time.
