Water pipe repairs remain a persistent problem

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Bone chilling weather has moved in and when it does any temperature fluctuations will contribute to an increase in water main breaks, but a persistent problem is Jackson's aging infrastructure.We found water shooting out of the pavement on Pinehurst street Monday. 

Previous water breaks have been patched on surrounding streets. 

To the south of Jackson, we found a massive hole on Siwell Road.This occurred last week when workers repaired two line breaks on a 20 inch water main.

The waterline collapsed.

According to City Spokeswoman Sheila Byrd the Public Works Department is still looking into the cause of the problems.

Jackson provides Byram with water.
