(JACKSON, MS) – The City of Jackson is issuing the following updates for Wednesday, February 24, 2021, related to the impacts of recent winter weather on the City and the efforts being made:

WATER PRESSURE

Today the City’s pressure is still fluctuating between 70 to 80 psi. We have made gains in the recovery and more residents are being restored with water. This is a fluid process as the system continues to gain pressure. Each day more residents should be seeing their water restored.

We are gauging progress by measuring the psi (pounds per square inch) in the water distribution system. The goal is to reach around 90 psi at OB Curtis WTP and around 80 psi at JH Fewell WTP. Today’s reading is up from 37 psi when the cold front came through resulting in water outages throughout the City of Jackson and City of Byram.

The City Water Maintenance Department is still battling water main breaks, and making progress on the repairs. Please see the list below of confirmed, unconfirmed, and completed water main breaks. The City encourages residents to report any water main breaks to 311. A complete list of water main breaks is at the end of this release.

The system-wide boil water notice is still in effect.

Those with water should continue to conserve it. Conserving water will allow fellow Jacksonians to get back online faster. We also ask that residents please refrain from tampering with fire hydrants.

All water meter issues should be directed to 601-960-0762 and 601-960-0761.

WATER DISTRIBUTION - UPDATED

BOTTLED DRINKING WATER – We anticipate additional bottled water deliveries and will announce drinking water distribution locations as they become available.

NON-POTABLE (FLUSHING) WATER is available at the following locations through Friday, February 26th from 9am to 6pm. Residents should bring containers.

Forest Hill High School – 2607 Raymond Road, Jackson, MS 39212

Jackson Fire Department (JFD) locations for non-potable (flushing) water have been removed from this list so that JFD can focus on deliveries to the elderly and homebound.

GARBAGE COLLECTION

SPECIAL ROLL OFF DUMPSTER DAY – To assist City of Jackson residents that have limbs down from the recent ice storm, the Solid Waste Division will provide Roll-Off Dumpsters on Saturday, 2/27/21 at Metro Center Mall in the Old Dillard’s parking Lot at 3645 U.S. HWY 80, from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. Storm debris only.

Waste Management is experiencing high volumes of garbage and trash along all routes. Expect some delays in service. Any routes not completed on schedule, will be first priority the next morning. Waste Management anticipates all routes, including residential, commercial and roll-off to be recovered by the end of the week, safety and road conditions permitting.

We ask that residents only place household garbage out for both collection days this week. Please hold bulk items and yard debris for next week.

Waste Management will remove limbs that are in compliance beginning next week.

Limbs should be cut into four (4) foot long segments and stacked in small piles no higher than three (3) feet.

If cut by paid contractors, the contractors are responsible for properly removing/disposing limbs.

Please contact Solid Waste at 601-960-1193 for more information.

WATER SEWER BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (WSBA)

The Water Sewer Business Administration (WSBA) lobby will reopen tomorrow, Thursday, February, 25, 2021.

PHONE LINES

The volume of calls to 311 continues to overwhelm the system. We ask that residents please reserve calls for visible water leaks and urgent needs for assistance. In addition to 311, residents can also call 601-960-1111 or 601-960-1778.
