City Officials Ask for Patience as Crews Work to Restore Water Pressure Inbox


Jackson City Officials are asking residents to have patience as they work to resolve the city’s latest water woes. Some residents have been experiencing low water pressure since late last week. Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba gave an update on the city’s water pressure during a news conference Monday. High elevation areas of the city have been affected the most. The water issues started early Thursday and were caused by a significant water main break and problems at the O.B. Curtis Treatment Plant. Several schools had to switch to virtual learning Monday because of the water pressure challenges. Jackson State University was impacted as well. City officials don’t have a date for when the issues will be resolved.
