Campus Water Update: Thursday, March 4, 2021

Although not completely back to normal, the water pressure on campus continues to hold. In-person classes will begin this afternoon with the first afternoon class to be held at 12:50 p.m. Staff are asked to return to work today as usual.

Students, faculty and staff may begin using restrooms across campus as usual; however, please email info@millsaps.edu if a toilet does not flush or if you notice any pooling of water, leaking, etc. In addition, the port-a-potties will remain on campus until we are confident they are no longer necessary.

As the City of Jackson continues to work on the water across Hinds County, the college’s emergency management team asks that residential students and staff continue to use the following water-saving protocols:

Showers:
 Students are asked to only use their usual residence hall showers between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. This assists with the water pressure across campus. The shower trailers continue to be available in the parking lot of the Academic Complex from 7:00 a.m. through 10:00 a.m. and again from 5:00 p.m. through 8:00 p.m. to cover the early morning and late evening times.

Laundry:
 Unfortunately, The Laundry Fairy is closed today (Thursday, March 4) because of the water issue. Information on additional off-campus laundry facilities is forthcoming. In the meantime, contact studentlife@millsaps.edu with questions.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. The college’s emergency management team will continue to monitor the situation and will update the community as details develop.

Email info@millsaps.edu with any questions. In case of an emergency call Campus Safety at 601-974-1234.
