SALTILLO, Miss. (WTVA) — Saltillo Mayor Rex Smith said the city's water customers will start getting river water on or close to December 2.
Smith made the announcement Tuesday evening in a post on Facebook.
Some customers have complained about the well water that was the source of the city's water supply, saying it was dirty when it came through the tap.
Those complaints prompted the city to move to buy water from the Northeast Mississippi Regional Water Supply District, which gets its water from the Tombigbee River.
The mayor said during the change the city will flush out the well water.
He added some could experience an increase in water pressure and/or a temporary change in the color, odor, taste or texture of the water during the transition.
