Boil Water Alert Issued

Wayne County, Miss.
The Hiwanee Water Association #2 issued a boil water notice for customers Wednesday.

It affects approximately 75 customers on Shubuta - Eucutta Road.

Water system officials say they notified the Mississippi State Department of Health of a pressure loss due to one or more line breaks caused by a storm.

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.
