The following is a press release from the Hub Water Association.
Hub Water Association has issued a Boil-Water Alert for customers who receive their drinking water from the water supply located in Marion County.
This affects approximately 60 customers on Hwy 43 south from Joe Magee to Thomas Lane south.
Water system officials notified the Mississippi State Department of Health of a pressure loss due to one or more line breaks.
When a distribution system loses pressure, contaminants can siphon back into the water. Public health officials consider any system that loses pressure contaminated until tests prove otherwise. Health officials strongly recommend that all water be boiled vigorously for one minute before it is consumed.
The water system will be notified when tests show that the water is safe to drink.
