This affects 498 customers who are served by the Wright's Campground located in Franklin County.
Wright's Campground (0190017) has issued a Boil-Water Alert for customers who receive their drinking water from their water supply located in Franklin County.
Water system officials notified the Mississippi State Department of Health of a system wide pressure loss due to motor failure at the well.
When a distribution system loses pressure, contaminants can siphon back into the water. Public health officials consider any system that loses pressure contaminated until tests prove otherwise. Health officials strongly recommend that all water be boiled vigorously for one minute before it is consumed.
The water system will be notified when tests show that the water is safe to drink.
Bringing water to a rolling boil for one minute will inactivate all major types of harmful bacteria.
Flush any faucet a minimum of 2 minutes to ensure clearing of the line serving the faucet.
