WSSC engineers helping in effort for clean water in Jackson, Mississippi 

Engineers from the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, the water authority for Montgomery and Prince George’s counties, are on the ground in Jackson, Mississippi, working to get clean water for the community.

An advisory warning residents of Jackson to boil their water before using it was finally lifted yesterday after seven weeks.

WSSC engineers were part of the team working on fixing pumps, filtration and distribution systems to restore clean water to the city. [NBC4]
