STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Repair crews have sent water samples to Jackson for testing after a main water break on Wednesday evening.
According to Starkville Utilities, a contractor damaged a water pipe on Locksley Way.
Some customers lost water pressure, and workers had to eventually turn the water off to make the repair.
Customers said they had low-pressure, brown water in their toilets and sinks the next morning.
In response, the City of Starkville issued a boil water notice for the entire city Thursday morning.
It will remain in effect until the test results are back. The city expects this process to be completed by Saturday.
Starkville Utilities restored water services and will receive the results of the water testing in two days.
