JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi State Department of Health has issued a boil water notice for four water associations in Choctaw County.
The notices say tests showed the presence of total coliform bacteria in a majority of the samples taken.
The water associations affected include the Pan Handle Water Association, Reform Water Association, Fentriss Community Water Association, and the town of Weir.
The associations serve nearly 3,600 customers.
Residents need to bring their water to a rolling boil for at least one minute before drinking, using to cook with, or washing their dishes.
