    January 23, 2017

    On Tuesday, January 24, 2017, there will be a water outage on Bowen Ave between General Pershing and Russell, and on General Pershing between Porter Avenue and Government Street, from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm, barring any unforeseen circumstances. The purpose of this water outage is to replace a fire hydrant. Because water pressure will be lost, you should boil your water vigorously for 1 full minute before consumption until you receive written notice that the Boil Water Notice has been lifted.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Public Works at 228-875-3955 during regular office hours, 6:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

    ***This notice has been distributed to the affected houses. If you received this notice, you will be affected and will need to follow the instructions above to boil your water.***
