Although the notice has been lifted, the Mississippi Department of Health (MSDH) advises those who receive water from the university to thoroughly wash dishes and food that may have been exposed to the contaminated water. The department also recommends flushing faucets for a total of 10 minutes to introduce system water throughout house plumbing.
The university issued the boil-water notice on Friday, July 13, after E. Coli was found in the water when conducting a sample, according to MSHD.
Presence of E. Coli in water usually indicates the water has been contaminated with either human or animal fecal matter, according to MSDH.
For those who receive water from the university, visit the MSHD’s website for additional measures.
