JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Three days after the city of Jackson announced the TV road well was back online, officials now say the remaining Siwell Road well is up and running.

A precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until two days of water samples are approved by the State Department of Health.

Those wells feed into the Jackson Maddox Well System, which makes up six wells and serves approximately 16,000 well water connections primarily in South Jackson and Byram.

The city says an estimated 2,000 connections are affected by the recent disruptions at the Siwell Road and TV Road wells.
