Pascagoula under city-wide boil water notice

Pascagoula declared a city-wide boil water advisory this morning after a water pump at one of the city’s water treatment facilities was damaged.

The advisory was issued about 11:30 a.m. The city said repairs are being made as quickly as possible.

At 1:30 p.m., a follow-up advisory said the water pump had been repaired and full water pressure should return to all residents in about two hours.

The city reminded citizens, however, that the boil water advisory would remain in effect until a treatment sample comes back clear.
