‘Plumbing issue’ at Forrest County Law Enforcement Complex ‘resolved’

FORREST COUNTY, Miss. (WDAM) – A “plumbing problem” at the Billy McGee Law Enforcement Complex in Forrest County has been “solved.”

FCSO spokesperson Capt. Kent Banks said in a message that water and sewage services were fully restored by Saturday morning.

“Water and sewage are working properly now,” Banks said.

Saturday’s report did not state what “problem” had caused the problem at the complex.

The FCSO issued a release on Friday, stating that the complex was experiencing an unspecified “plumbing problem”.

The problem affected the entire law enforcement complex, including the county jail, and required “the provision of additional water and sanitation alternatives to all personnel within the complex.”
