UPDATE: Released on April 27, 2018. Water from this system is now safe to drink.

JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - The state has issued a boil water alert for roughly 1,000 customers who get water from the city of Ripley.

This applies to those west of Highway 15 and south of Fairview Drive.

It appears a broken water line triggered a drop in water pressure, and a boil water alert is issued as a precaution in those instances.

There is no indication when tests from the state will be back determining the water is safe to drink without boiling.
