Update at 2:25 p.m.: TUD Spokesperson Lisa Westbrook reports that the water main pipeline on Lazy Z Lane in Crystal Falls has been repaired. Customers water will slowly return in the next hour or so, according to Westbrook. She adds that the repair forced the water to be turned off at the main pipeline, which could produce air in customers pipes and in turn discolored water. Westbrook recommends, “They [customers] run water from an outside hose bib to clear any sediment that may have been left in the pipeline.”
