HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - Around noon on Monday, the City of Hattiesburg water crews were dispatched near Classic Drive after a 4-inch water main was hit while Spire Energy was on a job site.

The line has since been repaired and water service is restored. Samples are currently being collected and delivered to the lab.

The following streets were affected: Honors Lane, Medinah Drive, Alex Lane, Classic Woods, Classic Drive (segments between Shelby Thames Drive to J Ed Turner), 17 Place, Fairway Place, Lake Estates Drive, Augusta Court, Lake Shore Drive, Brookline Drive and Spyglass Hill.

Due to the period of time without water service, residents along these streets are under a self-imposed boil water notice out of an abundance of caution. The notice will end once the lab on contract collects and analyzes the samples taken after the line is repaired.

Residents in this area were notified directly by staff, door hangers and through neighborhood association notification.

When the self-imposed boil water notice is lifted, the city said details will be shared.
