South Jackson Water Update

 The city of Jackson issued the following statements.

(5/17/2021)  The Siwell Road and TV Road wells on the Jackson Maddox Well Water System remain offline. The Department of Public Works crew together with outside contractors are onsite today at the Siwell Road well working to determine what repairs need to be made to bring this well back online first. The Siwell Road well is a larger well that distributes more water into the system.

Based on the current best case scenario assessment, Friday, May 21 is the earliest the Siwell Road Well may be back online and fully operational. Draining of the well and additional assessments are needed before a more definitive timeline can be shared.

The Jackson Maddox Well System serves approximately 16K well water connections primarily in South Jackson and the City of Byram. As the system continues to operate on only four wells, customers, particularly those at higher elevations, can expect to experience low or no water pressure in the impacted areas near these wells.

Precautionary Boil Water Advisory & Conservation Notice:

The precautionary boil water advisory issued on Monday, May 17 as a result of the TV Road well disruption will be expanded to also include areas impacted by the Siwell Road well disruption. These updated details will be sent separately.

The previously released conservation notice for the entire Jackson Maddox Well Water System remains in place. 

 (5/18/2021)  Due to the recent loss in water pressure, the City of Jackson Water/Sewer Utilities Division has issued a precautionary boil water advisory until further notice for the following area:

·         [2200-2299] TV Road; 39209

·         [100-2699] Maddox Road; 39209

·         [2200-4599] Raymond Road; 39212

·         [5700-6399] MS-18; 39212

·         [3700-7399] S. Siwell Road; 39212

·         [5800-6699] Terry Road; 39272

·         [9700-12799] Spingridge Road; 39170

·         [1000-3299] Gary Road; 39272

 This advisory does not affect surface water customers.


This is a precautionary advisory. This notice does not mean that your water is unsafe, but it does mean that you must take precaution and boil your water before use. All customers are advised to boil their drinking water until adequate pressure is restored to the system. Water should be brought to a rolling boil for one minute for the following: cooking or baking, making ice cubes, taking medication, brushing teeth, washing food, mixing baby formula or food, mixing juices or drinks feeding pets, washing dishes and all other consumption.

RESIDENTS WILL BE NOTIFIED IMMEDIATELY WHEN THE ADVISORY IS LIFTED. For more information, customers may call 601-960-2723 during business hours or 601-960-1778 (or 601-960-1875) after 4:00 p.m. and on weekends.

The race is on! Lake Caroline and areas around Highway 22 have been under a boil water notice since Sunday. Let's see who responds more quickly - Canton or Jackson. Canton's last "update" was Sunday.

This is too sad for words.

I think I would operate under the assumption the water is S&$t all the time in Jackson.

I feel for the South Jacksonians ( actually all Jacksonians) ... hopefully this will motivate the voters to elect somepne else.

But I doubt that will happen.

Don't Drink the Water, Ever! said...

@4:47 PM - correct. The default setting in Chowke's progressive Jacktown should be "don't drink the water, ever."

In other news, Tijuana, Mexico IS NOT under a boil water notice.

4:37, CMU fixed the problem on Sunday. I was there. Game over.

No sympathy from me. Why? They'll keep voting for the same people.

Continue to elect liberals/socialists/progressives and expect different results.

There are tons of issues at CMU. Tons. But Sunday was simply a breakage. CMU got it fixed and issued a precautionary boil water notice. I don’t see a huge problem to throw stones at based on Sunday. They were a little slow, and their notification could have been better. But not a bad job.

What do the Jackson City Council, Jackson's plumbing and the Jackson Police Department have in common?
None of them work!

The water in Jackson is a great example of what is wrong with Jackson. There is a problem so they fix it with duct tape and can say they tried our best and the same people can stay elected. How people are content with the lack of true leadership and the lack of wanting actual change is mind boggling to me. Figure out the root of the problem, figure out how to fix it, and fix it or let the people elect someone who will.

And while Rome burns, Nero plays his fiddle.

Where oh where is Baby Chock? Why, he is in Hattiesburg campaigning for the Democratic candidate for Mayor there - along with city consultant Marshan. This is after he was in Goodman campaigning for Marshan's friendgirl's campaign.

Maybe Baby Chock should be in Jackson taking care ohf business here - but that would mean that he was actually earning his salary and deserving his half a dozen protective guards in the entourage

7:10 and 8:43, I didn't say the problem wasn't fixed, I said we are under a boil water notice. We are still under a boil water notice - at least I guess we are. CMU's latest post is from Monday. We'll see Wednesday morning. The race continues.

At least when we see who Chowke is campaigning for other radical progressives are identified. These are people that if elected would also destroy their respective cities.

The post about CMU fixing their water issue has me thinking. Maybe Jackson should hire Rudolf Warnock to take over and lead the charge.

Jackson's financially troubled water system could get worse if Byram builds its own water system, & stops getting its water from Jackson, as WJTV reported.

I live in the Terry/Byram area and I am not included in the specific affected areas listed above, yet for several days I have had very little to no water pressure. As to those affected re-electing the same people, not all of us can vote in Jacktown elections yet we have to live with their incompetence.

Just read another shit screed from Laddco apologists Nick Judin and Ashton Pittman decrying how Jackson's water woes are all the result of racism, with no mention of how badly managed it has been largely under black leadership for the last 25 years as an equal contributor. I'm over being guilted into thinking it's my fault that Jackson has incompetent leadership, poor financial management, lousy public schools, and failing infrastructure, not when as KF has pointed out recently, they are collecting more revenue than ever.

Two separate wells went down at once? Or was one down anyway and then another failed.

Byram is going to use the old fashioned birth-control method. They will be pulling out.

If Jackson can just hold on until the next hurricane comes through and the fed will contribute, Lamumba can get it fixed, and the people will forget about all of the missing funds.

Byram water customers are probably the only ones paying Jackson for their water. Chowke will soon blame Byram for Jackson's money problems.

" I'm over being guilted into thinking it's my fault "

I honestly feel for ya 9:15.

You are what they call a product of childhood indoctrination.
The fact you felt "guilted" ( whatever that means ) ... is sad fact of many school systems. Primarily public schools.

But you now understand the reality of the left.

Good for you my friend ... you understand the reality of the left's agenda.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
