The Mississippi Department of Health congratulated the City of Jackson on Facebook for their water reaching federal drinking water standards.
They said that Jackson water from the O.B. Curtis and J.H. Fewell water treatment plants was tested and laboratory analysis found that the water was within federal drinking water standards.
After conducting lead and copper sampling, the results showed the system’s water below EPA action levels for latest six-month testing period.
MSDH said that while these are great results, until the city completes corrosion control efforts, MSDH still recommends precautions for pregnant women and small children.
