Our Mission:

The Pearl River Valley Water Supply District (the District) was created by the Mississippi Legislature in 1958.  The mission statement of the District is to operate and maintain the Ross Barnett Reservoir and surrounding District lands to provide water to Jackson, mitigate flooding, provide recreational opportunities, manage forest lands, improve our communities, and generate sufficient revenue to meet these goals without tax support from the member counties.  The District provides water and wastewater services to the residences and businesses in these communities and provides law enforcement protection for the 40 District-operated recreational facilities, which include campgrounds, parks, boat launches, and hunting and fishing area.​



Most mortgage companies escrow lease payments and submit payments upon the lease’s specific annual due date (usually the month of the mortgage’s loan closing).  If you choose to make payment of your lease fee individually, annual billings are mailed on the 15th of the month prior to the due date.  Late payment penalties will be assessed if payment is not received within 90 days of the due date. 

Payments can be mailed to P.O. Box 2180 Ridgeland MS 39158, or made in person at either the Madison County office on Madison Landing Circle or at the Rankin County office on Spillway Road.  There are also drop boxes located at both offices for payment after hours.

If you have any questions about your lease, please contact Jazlyn Johnson, Leasing Agent, at the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District office at (601)856-6574. 

If you fail to receive your annual billing, please contact our office as soon as possible.
