Water back on in Waveland, but boil water order remains

WAVELAND, MS (WLOX) - The water is back on in Waveland, but everyone in the city is still under a boil water notice.

City officials said a broken water line burst during a planned repair around 2am Tuesday. Those repairs are now complete. But it may be mid-afternoon before the city gets test results on the water. Until those come in, the boil water order will remain in place.

All 2,400 households tied into the city lines were without water for several hours. Crews are hoping the repair holds when crews restore full pressure to the line.
