Mayor Flaggs has just issued a statement about upcoming water emergency plans, asking citizens to please reduce water usage.
Statement from Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs, Jr. (2/21/21, 8:00 a.m.):
48-hour Water Emergency Plan:
“For the next 48 hours, I’m asking all Vicksburg residents to participate in an emergency water recovery system by voluntarily reducing your water use as City crews continue to repair leaks and busted lines that have contributed to service interruptions. If you do not have water service or if you see a leak, please call 601.636.1096 to report it. Please continue checking any property that you own that may be contributing to these pressure problems.
If you need water to be able to flush toilets, we have made it available at our fire station locations in Kings, on 61 South, and on Indiana Avenue.
All car wash businesses, and residential car washing, will remain shut down within the City of Vicksburg for the next 48 hours as we work to restore water service to those without it pursuant to my emergency powers under § 33-15-17 of the Mississippi Code.”See a typo? Report it here.
