Quitman Under Boil Water Notice

Quitman, Miss. A boil water notice has been issued for the entire city of Quitman.

Mayor Eddie Fulton said tests indicated coliform bacteria in the water supply.

Officials say the source is probably environmental and fecal contamination is not likely. However, it's important to find the source and resolve the problem.

Fulton said multiple positive tests have not happened before in Quitman and may be the result of operator error. Still, he expects the town to be under the notice until July 24.
