CWA Targets Water Upgrades

A boil water notice has been issued in Neshoba County for residents on and near Highway 491. The problem is a leak in the house pumping station of central water association.

When pressure is lost or reduced, officials advise consumers to then boil the water once service is restored.

In the meantime, CWA's Glenn Goldman says the association is currently in phase-two of an $11 million upgrade.

"We're going to eliminate the standpipe that you see and putting in a 100,000 gallon elevated storage tank, which will give a lot more water supply to customers," Goldman said. "And that should take care of this problem forever. The plans are being drawn now. We're about six months away."

Goldman says boil water notices are generally a precaution, because it's possible for contaminants to get in the lines when pressure is lost.
