Boil water notice for Belhaven lifted

By ANTHONY WARREN,

Jackson city officials have announced that the boil water notice affecting Belhaven has been lifted. The move comes about two days after crews finished installing a new three-foot main in the Belhaven community, after the previous one there burst. The break caused a boil water notice to be put in place for all of Jackson, a move that affected about 60,000 customers. For a short time, residents in the Belhaven community were also without water. Before a notice can be lifted, the city has to be given an all clear by the Mississippi Department of Health. The Presidential Hills subdivision is still under a boil water notice, according to a release.
