Jackson lifts boil water notice over the weekend

Jackson officials announced Saturday that the city had lifted the boil water notice for all customers.

The advisory lasted 13 days after freezing temperatures caused the city’s water lines to break and led to a decrease in water pressure in the distribution system. Jackson issued the citywide notice on Christmas morning.

A spokesperson from Jackson University confirmed that water pressure at the school’s campus was back to normal and classes began Monday as . JSU had asked students last week to delay moving into dormitories while pressure was low at the school’s facilities.

Jackson announced it would resume in-person learning on Monday. The school district had students take classes virtually from home last week after over 30 schools saw little to no water pressure.

The city lifted the boil water notice a couple days after announcing a historic federal investment in the drinking water system.
