MSU to issue boil water notice for three buildings

SDN Staff

Mississippi State University will install a new water main to service Deavenport Hall, Dogwood Hall and the G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery Center for America’s Veterans at Nusz Hall, which is expected to temporarily impact water service beginning Tuesday night.

The university will self-impose a localized boil water notice for each of the three buildings, effective Tuesday at 5 p.m.

The new line is being installed in order to abandon an older water line.

No other campus facilities will be affected by this boil water notice.

A water sample will be sent to the Mississippi State Department of Health, and after it is approved, the boil water notice will be lifted. Students, faculty and staff in these buildings may use the water for sanitary purposes, but ingestion is discouraged until the water sample is approved.

All of the work is expected to be finalized by the end of the business day on Friday, May 18.
