LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - The city of Laurel's water department is back to reading meters manually.

City Attorney David Ratcliff said the city is still in litigation over the $1 million spent purchasing new meters in 2005.

Ratcliff said over 3,000 of the meters installed did not work, and it is unknown at this time, if the money will be refunded.
