A stretch of road in the city limits is back open after an early-morning water main break Monday.

Starkville Utilities General Manager Terry Kemp told the Starkville Daily News the break, which occurred on an 8-inch underground water main at the intersection of North Jackson Street and Critz Street, had been repaired before 11 a.m. on Monday.

"It's completed and done, now the street department will evaluate to try and get everything back to normal soon," Kemp said.

Kemp did not have an exact cause for the broken main, but said the crew was able to fix it quickly.

"It's just another one of those things where it just failed," Kemp said.

While hydrants were opened to flush water from the main in the area, Kemp said there has been no impact to city drinking water or water service.

Kemp did, however, advise motorists driving through the area to use caution.

"Everything is good except the road," Kemp said. "We will have to work on it, so everyone will have to be careful on it."
