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.
