Here’s where to get water in Jackson

The City of Jackson and the Mississippi Rapid Response Coalition is distributing drinking water and non-potable water daily amid the ongoing water crisis. The state has yet to announce any of its distributions site. This post will be updated.

For drinking water:

5 p.m. Monday – Friday

South Jackson

  • Sykes Community Center, 520 Sykes Rd.
  • Oak Forest Community Center, 2827 Oak Forest Dr.

West Jackson

  • Westland Plaza Parking Lot
  • IAJE Community Center, 406 W. Fortification St.

11 a.m. Saturdays

  • Grove Park  
  • Sykes Community Center 

1 p.m. Sundays

  • Sykes Community Center 
  • MS Move Across from Tougaloo College  (3 – 7 p.m.)

Mississippi Rapid Response Coalition is a coalition of community organizations with a mission to provide rapid relief to communities in crisis in Mississippi.

The Jackson Municipal Airport Authority (JMAA) has also partnered with the City of Jackson to provide water to the Jackson community at Hawkins Field Airport on Tuesday, Aug. 30 and Sept. 13 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at 558 W. Ramp St.

Non-potable water, for cleaning, flushing:

The City of Jackson has brought in tankers to distribute non-potable water to residents in need. Residents are asked to bring a container – such as a garbage can or cooler – to store the water. The tankers are located at Forest Hill High School at 2607 Raymond Road and at the MetroCenter at 3645 Highway 80

Non-potable water is not of drinking quality, but may still be used for other purposes, such as flushing toilets, washing clothes and cleaning.
