Boil water notice for parts of Decatur, includes ECCC

DECATUR, Miss. (WTOK) -- UPDATE: Water service has been restored to East Central Community College, but the boil water notice is still in effect. The ruptured water line has been repaired.

EARLIER:

Residents who get their water from Decatur Waterworks in Decatur are under a boil water notice until further notice. This includes East Central Community College.

The notice has been issued due to a water main on 10th Street that ruptured Thursday morning.

This break in the water line has caused all the water to be out for the ECCC Campus. Officials posted on Facebook that they hope water is restored by 1 p.m. Thursday.

The college says it will have bottled drinking water available beginning Thursday at various locations on campus, including dormitories.

The cafeteria is under normal hours of operation.

ECCC says it is exploring alternate locations for Thursday night's basketball games should water not be restored to the campus by early Thursday afternoon. An announcement will be made as soon as possible if there will be any changes to tonight’s games against Gulf Coast scheduled for Brackeen-Wood Gym.

If town residents need any more information, they can call 601-635-2761.
