JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It has become an all too familiar sight in the capital city.

Another water main break causing headaches for Jackson residents.

Public works crews are working to repair the break at the corner of Eminence Row and Douglas Avenue.

Residents say their water is now cut off because of the issue.

This isn't the first time public works has had to respond to the location. 

Our crew saw patches of dirt from previous repairs in the area and we were told the pipes in this part of the city are especially vulnerable whenever it gets cold.

"I walked out the door and there was water everywhere. Everywhere. I mean, water running just like it was a river," said resident Tommy Robertson. 

At this point, the neighborhood is not under a boil water notice.

We will update this story if that changes.
