(DeSoto County, Miss.) A boil water alert is in effect for people in DeSoto County who receive their drinking water from the Buena Vista Lakes water supply.

The alert affects about 900 customers.

The system recently lost pressure during a power outage caused by last week’s storm.

As a precaution, people are warned not to drink tap water from the system during the advisory.

It is advised that customers boil all drinking and cooking water for one minute to kill harmful bacteria.
