OKOLONA, Miss. (WTVA) -- The city of Okolona has been placed under a boil water notice.
The Mississippi State Department of Health issued the alert for the water system's 3,050 customers after samples show the presence of coliform bacteria in the drinking water.

Officials say the notice remains in effect until the city is notified it has been lifted.
