Residents in Jackson, Mississippi, are still waiting for reliable water supply, according to officials.

Before health inspectors can examine the water flowing out of the faucets, an emergency pump was built, and workers are now trying to get the pressure back to normal in the capital city.

Residents in Jackson, Mississippi, are still waiting for reliable water supply, according to officials.

On Wednesday, workers erected an emergency rental pump at a water treatment facility in Jackson, Mississippi, in an effort to provide additional service to the city’s parched citizens, who may still be days away from dependable water delivery, according to officials.

Although Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba attempted to sound upbeat when speaking to reporters, he listed the locations and operating times of bottled water distribution centers around the city, some of which were set to open this weekend, indicating that the crisis would likely continue for several more days.

Before health inspectors can analyze the water coming from the faucets, the main goal is to get the water pressure back to normal.

We want that to happen, he added, adding that we also want our folks to feel more normal again.

Two days have passed since Lumumba declared a water system emergency due to issues at the O.B. Curtis Water Plant caused by flooding.

Due to the challenges, many localities are experiencing chronic shortages of potable water, low pressure, or perhaps no service at all.

The Jackson water crisis, according to Governor Tate Reeves, threatens “vital needs” and has no resolution in sight.

Reeves tweeted a picture of the construction on Wednesday along with the statement, “We are constructing our emergency rental pump at Jackson’s water plant.

“Thank you to the technicians, delivery crews, and local specialists who are doing these repairs to bring water back to Jackson. There is still work to be done, but it is moving along very quickly!”

State officials warned Jackson residents to expect patchy service despite the pump construction.

As work is being done on the O.B. Curtis Water Treatment Plant, there will be fluctuations in water pressure, according to a statement released Wednesday just before noon by the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency. “This could occasionally imply no water.”

The facility was pumping water at a near-normal 80 pounds per square inch, or psi, at one point overnight, but by midday, it had dropped to 40 psi, according to the mayor.

Lumumba added, “We are grateful for that addition to the treatment process. The new pump at O.B. Curtis is in and it’s pumping. However, there were some difficulties at the factory last night.

“What this has led to is that many surface water consumers at this level, who may have seen improvements earlier in the week, now afterward have lost water pressure,” he continued.

The capital city of the state, which has roughly 150,000 residents and an approximate 83% Black population, has long been beset by infrastructure problems that have made accessing clean, dependable water difficult.

In 2020, the Environmental Protection Agency published a thorough report showing serious flaws in Jackson’s water system, including the failure to replace lead pipes, defective monitoring technology, and insufficient staffing.
