The Water District

 

Fisher Ferry Water District was formed in 1966 to serve areas in south Warren County Mississippi that did not have a central water system.  The area currently served is along Halls Ferry and Fisher Ferry Road areas and is approximately 34 square miles.  We currently have over 1700 connections and serve a population of about 6000 along with several businesses and public facilities.  The Water District is governed by laws of the State of Mississippi and is monitored for compliance by the Mississippi Department of Public Health. 

 

Our Meetings:

Monthly board meetings are normally held the 3rd Tuesday of each month.  Please contact the office if you would like to attend.

 

Annual Membership meeting is held the 3rd Tuesday in February.  Time and location of the meeting will be announced in a newsletter sent to members, prior to the meeting.

The Water Board

Fisher Ferry Water Board

Operations of the district are managed by a volunteer water board with six members.  Board members are:

    Travis Vance, Jr.-  President

    Malcolm Dove- Vice President

    Harry Johnson

    Lewis Decell

    William Arnold

    Ronnie Richardson

Board members are elected at the annual meeting and serve for three year terms. 

Ozonation Plant

The well water is about 104 degrees when pumped and is circulated in cooling towers prior to treatment in a state of the art ozonation plant prior to distribution to the system.  The treatment removes color from the water, removes gases, and lowers the temperature.      

To Request Service

 Application Requirements: Before water service may be rendered, a user agreement must be signed and appropriate fees paid to the FFWD. New water meter service requires a written request 20 working days prior to date of desired services. The District shall collect connection fees, as well as applicable deposits, in advance. This will include the cost of making actual connection and extending the service line to member’s property line.  Call the water district office to start the process.  See the link below to Standard Operating Procedures below for details on fees and other requirements. 

 

Our Water Source

The water district purchased water from the City of Vicksburg for a number of years, but in 2005 put in service deep water wells in the Sparta Sand formation.  The water quality is good overall, but requires some treatment.  (see discussion of treatment by ozone below)
