Broken water pipe goes unfixed, frustrates neighborhood

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A repaired pipe broke again overnight in a Hattiesburg neighborhood and flooded a man's yard. It also left nearby residents with low water pressure.

On Tuesday morning, a different crew of city workers came back to the residence on Langston Road and replaced the water line and area residents have good water pressure. 

This come just after a the neighborhood said a broken water pipe has been flooding their neighborhood for almost two days. 

The line break occurred on Langston road, just a short distance from James Street near Barkley road.

Water pressure for residents on James Street was very low Monday morning due to a water main break.

Other residents at the scene said that they have not had much water pressure all day.

One resident is frustrated after a broken water main has been flooding his yard.

Seven On Your Side asked resident Frankie Benton what the city said when called about the problem.

"(It might be a while)... but the while done run out, that happened last night and this is 3 o'clock in the evening. If they didn't do nothing but just cut it off that'd been all right with me but it flooding out my house now,” Benton said.

Around 3 p.m., the city of Hattiesburg sent representatives to repair the pipe, but told Seven on Your Side that this was the fourth busted pipe that they had to fix that day.

 City crews were working on the problem by late afternoon.
