Laurel to repair water system

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - The city of Laurel has started making repairs to its water system.

The city is installing new water lines off University Avenue.

Officials say a 2006 assessment identified north Laurel to have a greater problem with low pressure and repetitive maintenance; however, officials said repairs are being made all over the city.

Officials expect the project will be complete by the end of the year.
