JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The City of Jackson announced non-potable (flushing) water will be available at the following locations on Tuesday, March 2, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

  • Walton Elementary School – 3200 Bailey Avenue, Jackson, MS, 39213

Neighbors are asked to bring their own containers to those locations for the non-potable water.

Many neighbors in South Jackson have not had water in two weeks. They are having to drive to multiple locations in order to get water.

“You know, I take medicine, and it’s hard not to have any water. I wouldn’t want anyone to be without water because it’s not a good feeling,” said Ebony Myers, a Jackson neighbor.

Myers said on a daily basis, they bring about five to six containers to Forest Hill for volunteers to fill up. On Tuesday, a local church donated bags of lettuce and baby wipes to those who came through the line.
