Update-The water main break near Chin Street and Paper Mill Road has been repaired.
A water main break near Chin Street and Paper Mill Road has resulted in a water outage. The outage affects MAWSS customers who are north of Bay Bridge Road and east of the Norfolk Southern Railway and farther north along Hwy 43 to Jacintoport Boulevard. The water is expected to be restored by 4:00 p.m. this afternoon.
Out of an abundance of caution, MAWSS asks customers in the affected areas to boil water for three minutes prior to consumption. MAWSS crews will flush the lines, test the water and customers will be notified when the Boil Water Advisory is lifted.
For additional information, customers should contact the MAWSS customer care line at
