UPDATE: Tennessee American Water crews have fixed a leak left some residents without water in the Dayton Boulevard area on Wednesday.

TAW spokesperson Daphne Kirksey says there have been two leaks in the last 24 hours.

Kirksey says when crews finished repairing the second leak, the original leak in the Midvale Avenue area off Dayton Boulevard began leaking again.

The leak left some customers in the area without water, including residents at Liberty Heights Apartments.

TAW crews repaired the leak around 8:00 p.m., restoring water to the surrounding area.

Kirksey says residents who experience air or discolored water can run cold tap until it runs clear.

PREVIOUS UPDATE: The main has been repaired. 

Officials say crews are turning valves back on and flushing hydrants. 

They say if you were in the affected area, run cold tap water until it is clear if you see the water is discolored. 

Residents who live in elevated areas will take longer to have their water back on. 


PREVIOUS STORY: Repairs are underway on a water main break on Dayton Boulevard will begin within the next half hour.

Crews with Tennessee American Water Company are on scene.

Water has been turned off in the area so crews can repair the six-inch water line.  McDonald's located at the corner is not serving food due to the break. 

One lane of traffic on Dayton Boulevard is blocked in that area.

Tennessee American Water Company officials say the water will be off until at least noon.
