Self-Imposed Precautionary Boil Water Notice Issued for City of Oxford, Mississippi Water System
The City of Oxford, Mississippi has issued a self-imposed precautionary boil water notice for all customers that receive water from the City of Oxford, including those outside the City limits. This notice is following a water main break near Highway 6.
This does not affect the University of Mississippi or private water associations.
The City will be collecting water samples to be tested by the Mississippi Department of Health. Results should be available by Tuesday. Pending those results, the boil water notice is expected to be lifted on Tuesday.
Until the precautionary notice is lifted, customers are advised to boil all water for one minute before using for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, washing dishes or fruits and vegetables.
Do not use ice made from recent tap water.
