There will be a controlled flare burning at the O.B. Curtis Water Treatment Plant in order to help repair the ammonia leak that was identified earlier this week, Mississippi State Health Department officials announced Saturday morning.

“During the transfer of product and while emptying the leaking tank for repair, there may be a controlled burn-off of the gas that may cause a visible flare into the sky,” according to the MSDH press release. “There is no need for concern, and there is no threat to the public. The burn-off will take place intermittently throughout the day today.”
