The unusual winter weather is taxing local area utilities. Shortly after 9 a.m. on Thursday Oxford Utilities reported a water main break on South 8th near Fillmore.
“Crews are mobilizing to make the repair. Customers in the area will lose water service when we valve off the line. Fill a tub now to store water to flush toilets,” was posted to Twitter.
Water and power challenges have been plaguing the city for several days and may continue into the weekend.
