Okolona boil notice lifted

CJ-0718-OKBOA-Water-Bills-1C.jpgThe Mississippi State Department of Health lifted a boil-water notice on Friday, Sept. 6 for customers who receive their drinking water from the City of Okolona water supply.

The state had issued a boil-water notice for Okolona on Thursday Aug. 29 and were told to boil water over the Labor Day weekend.
A random sampling showed the presence of total coliform bacteria in the drinking water last week and prompted the boil-water notice.
Richie Cousin, superintendent of the Okolona Water Department, said a chlorinator failed at one of the city wells and triggered the samples to show problems.
The City of Okolona water system serves approximately 3,050 customers and gets its water from aquifiers in Chickasaw County.
