周围 5,000 杰克逊的顾客仍然没有水, 密西西比州, 市官员说

尽管仍有数千人处于开水咨询之下, 关于 5,000 杰克逊的用水客户, 密西西比州, don’t any have service, a decline from 本周早些时候.

查尔斯·威廉姆斯, public works director in Jackson, said in a news conference Friday that there have been improvements in water restoration in the city, estimating thatless than possibly 5,000 顾客” are still without water.
I am encouraged that a lot of our residentshad their water restored for the second day consistently, so we want to continue to tread forward with that,” Williams said. “Over the weekend if we stay consistent with the health department, we’ll need about 48 hours of consistency, then we’ll start sampling and start getting a lot of the areas off boil water notices.
      关于 43,000 customers in the city are still under a boil water advisory. Williams said the water system pressure is currently at 85 pounds per square inchand if it stays that way through the weekend, boil advisory notices can start being lifted.
        The news comes as thousands of Jackson residents have gone weeks without water access, after a winter storm hit the area in February. 风暴, which also affected Texas and Louisiana, 造成 80 water breaks throughout the city, which has been on a boil-water advisory since February 23.
          The city is now seeking $ 47 million from the state to improve water infrastructure, it announced Thursday. The pipes in the city are over 100 岁, Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba said earlier in the week, and water issues such as this one have become a common occurrence in the city.
            Regardless of whether the state approves the $ 47 million request, Williams said the city will require more funding to sustain improvements in the future.
            Even if we were to get the $ 47 百万, that’s not going to solve all the problems we have,” 他说. “We have a bunch more problems, and you’re going to have to find a steady revenue in order to satisfy them.
