The Mississippi Department of Health has issued Boil Water Notice in Kemper County.
The advisories are for the Northwest Kemper Water Association #2 Cleveland water supply and the Northwest Kemper Water Association #3 Kynard water supply. Officials said water sampling for both revealed the presence of total coliform and E. coli bacteria. The Mississippi State Department of Health strongly recommend that all water be boiled vigorously for one minute before it is consumed. This precaution will last at least two full days and water system officials will be immediately notified when the boil water alert is lifted.
