Culkin Water District issued a Boil-Water Alert for customers who receive their drinking water from their water supply located in Warren County.
This affects all customers at 6801 Paxton Road, including all Lots at this address.
This affects 100 customers on Center Point Road.
Water system officials notified the Mississippi State Department of Health of a pressure loss due to one or more line breaks.
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. Health officials strongly recommend that all water be boiled vigorously for one minute before it is consumed.
The water system will be notified when tests show that the water is safe to drink.
Bringing water to a rolling boil for one minute will inactivate all major types of harmful bacteria.
Flush any faucet a minimum of 2 minutes to ensure clearing of the line serving the faucet.
