The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) has updated the water distribution sites that will be available starting tomorrow across the state’s capital city.
According to MEMA, the narrowing of locations that will hand out non-potable water is due to the improvement of water pressure in Jackson.
“Residents in Jackson and Byram have seen days of continuous water pressure. We’ve seen a significant decrease in the need for non-potable water at our sites. We feel confident in phasing out some non-potable water distribution,” said MEMA Executive Director Stephen McCraney.
Starting Saturday, September 10, the following sites will be available for Jackson residents that are in need of water:
- State Fairgrounds: 1207 Mississippi Street
- Metrocenter Mall: 3645 Highway 80 (Non-potable only)
- Smith Wills Stadium: 1200 Lakeland Drive
- Davis Road Park : 2300 Davis Road, Terry (Byram)
Water will continue to be distributed daily from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
❗️Beginning TOMORROW (9/10), Metrocenter Mall will be the ONLY location distributing non-potable water.
❗️ALL SITES WILL CONTINUE TO DISTRIBUTE BOTTLED WATER❗️https://t.co/TAYzBwYnCf pic.twitter.com/TjpE9eQtyI
