About 150,000 residents in Jackson, Mississippi, are relying on bottled water after the city’s water treatment plant failed, forcing schools and many businesses to close.
- Out of water. No more water.
DANYELLE HOLMES: This has been an issue for me since I came down here to Tougaloo College in 1991. I was always told not to drink that water. When I came here to Jackson, it was smelling like chlorine.
ASHLEY TOSÉ: We need something to happen because for it to be going on for years, I honestly don't even want to bathe my baby in Jackson's water.
KENDRA PAYNE: It's sad. And I can't even afford to move out of Jackson so I have to stay here and deal with this.
