Tennessee American Water reminded customers that there may be some discoloration and/or sediment in the water. Opening the cold water faucets for high-volume valves, such as the bathtub, will help clear your home's lines faster.

A voicemail delivered late Tuesday afternoon to customers outlined the timing of the service interruption, which is scheduled to begin at 10:00pm Wednesday night and should be concluded about 6:00am Thursday morning.

The affected areas are south from East Brainerd Road to the TN/GA state line, heading east of Shady Rest Road and south of Morin Road, along Morris Hill Road.
