HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The public hearing for the Arnold Line Water Association has been rescheduled for Thursday, Jan. 19, 2017 at 10 a.m. at the Woolfolk State Building in Jackson.

After the hearing, the matter will be taken into advisement prior to the drafting of a recommended order that will be submitted to the Commission for approval.
