A boil water notice is in effect for all customers in the former Bluefield Water Association area on the west side of Starkville, according the city water department.
The area affected is west of the Highway 25 bypass and south of Highway 182. The warning is expected to be in effect through the weekend, lasting at least until 5 p.m. Tuesday.
"A spokesperson for the City of Starkville stated this precautionary action was necessary because the system lost pressure due to a water line being damaged," the news release said.
Water department officials recommend "vigorously" boiling water for one full minute before consuming it. Samples will be collected for testing. Updates will be posted at
