JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Leaders with Walmart and the Salvation Army of Jackson distributed water to neighbors in need on Wednesday at the store’s location on Greenway Drive.

Neighbors in Jackson were left with little to no potable drinking water after last week’s flooding from the Pearl River. The flooding caused issues at the O.B. Curtis Water Treatment Facility.

“The people of the City of Jackson need a little water. Salvation Army and Walmart have partnered together this morning to pass some out. As you can see, the line behind me, it’s been going since 8:00 this morning,” said Major Bill Shafer with the Salvation Army.

Water will be given out at the Walmart location while supplies last.

Jackson neighbors in line said they were grateful for these contributions, and they hope the city can get the problem fixed soon.

“It makes it easier to manage. However, the city, more so, has to fix the issue on their end for us to feel more comfortable. It’s a long line to have to constantly do this,” said Crystalyn Scott, who lives in Jackson.
