Update: As of 8 a.m. the main break had been isolated and it is OK to resume normal water usage.
There was a major water main break in the area of 9th and Michigan Avenues earlier this morning, and water pressure remains low across the city.
Crews are working now to shut off the main. Once that is done, pressure should be restored, the water superintendent tells me. Until then, residents are asked to avoid using water, if possible, to help maintain pressure for those who need it.
A separate main break in the area of Mill Road and Hawthorne overnight has also left several residents without water; that may not be fixed until later today.
I will keep you posted.
