Some Jackson residents must continue to boil water

Water System Update

The pressure on the well system in southwest Jackson had not recovered to the level that it should have this morning and city crews discovered that a temporary pump motor had failed at a pumping station on Highway 18.

This pump was installed last week and the vendor has delivered a new temporary pump today. City crews will be installing the pump tonight and hope to finish by tomorrow morning.

As a result of this pump failure, the well system will continue to be under a boil water notice throughout the week until the system can be sanitized and the pressure can rise to the necessary level to begin testing.

The areas affected by this boil water notice include:

  • West of Westhaven Boulevard, in addition to North Westhaven Drive, East Westhaven Drive, South Westhaven Drive, Westwood Drive and Sunnybrook Drive
  • South of Interstate 20, West of Robinson Road Extension
  • West of Robinson Road Extension/Suncrest Drive to Cooper Road
  • West and South of Forest Hill Road/West of Interstate 55
  • Oak Creek Subdivision
  • Cedar Hills Subdivision
  • Brookhollow Subdivision
  • Willowood Subdivision
  • Lake Dockery Subdivision
  • Oak Leaf Subdivision
  • The city of Byram
