Two NLWA Officials Resign

Lauderdale County, Miss. A North Lauderdale Water Association meeting Thursday morning has left some customers feeling more optimistic about the future.

NLWA customers have been complaining about the quality of their water, from color to pressure to whether it's there at all.

About 40 people showed up for the meeting, both board members and the public, to discuss their concerns.

The president of the board and general manager officially resigned from their positions Thursday in an attempt to help the association find a fresh start.

"I told them today, don't judge us by our promises; you'll judge us by our performance," said NLWA board member Ike Keifer. "Ultimately, if we do it right, we'll all be anonymous. And this all goes away."

Keifer says the association has been reaching out to neighboring water associations, the city of Meridian and Mississippi Rural Water to try to solve its problems.
