City officials reported that water was shut down in the immediate neighborhood as part of an effort to stanch the flow from a broken water main that had been gushing into the streets since Friday night. The geyser finally ran dry around sunrise Monday, after officials trucked in parts from Alabama under a police escort.

Despite this, a large swath of the city remained under an order to boil water before drinking it, even in areas where pressure had been restored following the repair of a major leak on Saturday. The days of outages and ongoing disruptions have left some residents frustrated with the pace of repairs and the city’s communication efforts.

“We are laser-focused on this problem, and my administration understands how critical water is for our lifeline in this city,” Mayor Andre Dickens told reporters at the site of the water main break Monday.
