BOIL WATER NOTICE | MARCH 13, 2014

BOIL WATER ALERT 

 

DATE OF NOTICE:  3/13/2014

 

Local officials today issued a precautionary boil water notice for customers who get their drinking water from the CITY OF BRANDON located in RANKIN COUNTY.  Darion Warren, spokesperson for the water system, stated this precautionary action was necessary because the system lost pressure due to water line improvements in relation to the Highway 471 Widening Project.  This affects approximately 375 customers in the Cornerstone Subdivision and the portion of Ambiance Subdivision that is serviced by the City of Brandon.

When a water distribution system loses pressure, contaminants can siphon back into the system.  Public health officials consider any system that has lost pressure contaminated until tests of the water prove otherwise.

As soon as pressure is restored to those customers affected, water system officials will begin collecting water samples for testing and recommend that consumers vigorously boil their water for one minute before it is consumed or use an alternate source for drinking/cooking.

Users will be notified when tests indicate the water is safe to drink.
