JACKSON, Miss. — Jackson officials issued a precautionary boil water notice Sunday due to a recent loss in water pressure.
Officials issued a precautionary boil water advisory until further notice for the 2300 to 2599 area of Eastover Drive and the 4400 to 4499 area of Hickory Springs Road.
The notices do not mean that your water is unsafe, but it does mean that you must take precaution and boil your water before using it.
All customers are advised to boil their drinking water until adequate pressure is restored to the system.
Water should be brought to a rolling boil for one minute for the following: cooking or baking, making ice cubes, taking medication, brushing teeth, washing food, mixing baby formula or food, mixing juices or drinks feeding pets, washing dishes and all other consumption.
