Oxford Public Works

Boil Notice lifted

The city of Oxford has lifted the precautionary boil water advisory issued for limited areas of west Oxford as of 3 this afternoon.

The advisory was issued on Tuesday afternoon following multiple repairs to a 12-inch main water line that serves residential areas west of the Jackson Avenue/Highway 6 intersection.

Results of water quality testing by the Mississippi Department of Health have confirmed that the water quality meets drinking water standards.  There is no further need to boil water prior to use and there is no further action necessary before consuming the water. (September 25, 2014)
