Boil Water Advisory!

Boil Water Advisory!

A Boil Water Advisory is being issued for customers who live on:

  1. Alan St, Prairie St, Thomas St, Diane Dr, Glen Dr, Lyda Steen Dr, Quail Rd, Ridgecrest Cir, Cook Rd from Alan St to Victoria Dr.

We are posting this precautionary action because the system lost pressure. A broken water line/main caused the system to lose pressure. When a water distribution system loses pressure, contaminants can siphon back into the system. Public Health Officials consider any system that has lost pressure contaminated until tests of the water prove otherwise.

As soon as pressure is restored to those customers affected, water system officials will begin collecting water samples for testing.

When pressure is restored, officials recommend that customers vigorously boil their water for ONE minute before it is consumed or use an alternate source for drinking/cooking.

Customers will be notified when tests indicate the water is safe to drink. We apologize for the inconvenience; and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call West Jackson County Utility District / Micah Bridges at 228-872-3898 ext. 313. Micah Bridges email:

Thank you!
