VICKSBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A boil water alert has been lifted for the City of Vicksburg.

Water was restored on Friday after a valve blew on the 36-inch water line that supplies water to the city, causing a massive outage and repairs. 

Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs said a plan has been in the works for a year to build an alternate water line out of the flood zone. It will be constructed along railroad tracks in front of the water treatment plant.

Officials say designs for the new line are due this week.

After bidding, the project is expected to be completed next March.
