HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — A water main break in south Huntsville has caused a large outage in the area, according to Huntsville Utilities.

Todd Long with the utility company says their Water Operations crew responded to a water main break along Memorial Parkway and reported that a “material failure” caused a small hole to break in the main.

Long says the issue will cause a “disruption” in the water service of nearby residents between Weatherly Road and Magna Carta Place.

Around 9 a.m. water was restored to some homes along Memorial Parkway. However, homes on Meadowbrook Drive remain without water.

Huntsville Utilities says if customers notice cloudy water, they should run the tap for several minutes until the water comes out clear.

Further repairs, according to Huntsville utilities, could take between eight to 10 hours.
