Due to recent historic rainfall, Jackson, Mississippi requested aid in order to provide residents with safe drinking water, and Marylanders stepped up to help.
Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works sent a water plant operator, electrician, mechanical supervisor, and instrumentation technician to help establish a consistent supply of safe drinking water for Jackson residents. Additionally, WSSC Water, which serves Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties, sent water professionals as well. Maryland’s mutual aid response is assisting in Jackson’s water crisis recovery efforts specifically at the O.B. Curtis water treatment facility.
The Maryland Association of Counties applauds the efforts of all those answering the call to help another state in need.
