TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo water residents may return to normal water usage now.
Earlier Monday, the City of Tupelo asked water customers to conserve water for 24 hours because of a water line problem in Mooreville. The 36-inch line came part in two locations when a big gash opened in a section of Highway 178 over the weekend.
This water line provides water to Tupelo.
