The water supply in Mississippi’s capital city remained unsafe for its 150,000 residents to drink or brush their teeth Tuesday after water treatment pumps failed a day earlier, exacerbating a persistent water crisis in the city.

Excessive rainfall had doused Jackson and central Mississippi throughout August, and flooding of the Pearl River caused pumps to fail at a Jackson plant, officials said. Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, who lives in Jackson, announced a state of emergency and warned residents late Monday to not drink the water.

Reeves said the city also “cannot produce enough water to fight fires, to reliably flush toilets and to meet other critical needs.” Low water pressure left some people unable to take showers or flush toilets and officials said the low pressure caused concern for firefighting. Those who did have water flowing from the tap were told to boil it to kill bacteria that could make them sick.
