Boil water notice lifted
Officials have lifted the "boil water" notice for people who get their drinking water from Kipling Water Association No. 2 in Kemper County.
Water from the system no longer needs boiling. Multiple test performed indicate the water now meets the standards of the Safe Drinking Water Law.
For information, call the office at 743-5800.
