Meridian water break brings brown water

Crews from the city of Meridian worked Sunday evening to control a break in a water main near Locust Grove and Fairview roads.

Workers isolated the leak and made repairs.

Some residents may have experienced low household water pressure and brown water coming from their taps. City officials recommend running cold water through household faucets until the water runs clear to flush any dirt out of the system. It could take several minutes.

Residents should refrain from washing clothes until they’ve cleared their lines.
