Boil-water order in effect for Jackson neighborhood until 10 a.m. Friday
Annwood Estates residents in Jackson have been placed under a boil-water order after a water main broke on Brittany Drive, according to a news release from Jackson.
The order will last until 10 a.m. Friday. Residents are asked to boil water vigorously for three minutes before using for drinking, brushing teeth or preparing food.
Ice cubes should be disposed and new cubes made with water that has been boiled.
Dishes can be disinfected by soaking them for a minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of household bleach per gallon of water.
According to a news release, water for bathing generally does not have to be boiled, but children should be supervised so they don't swallow any water. Consult a physician if you have cuts or severe rashes.
