Water Main Break on Brainerd Road

Water Main Break on Brainerd Road

UPDATE: TN American Water says as of 1:30 Sunday, the repairs are fixed. Not all customers have their water, but their spokesperson says they expect it to be back on soon.

Chattanooga Public Works crews are repairing a water main break in the 3900 block of Brainerd Road. As of 10 a.m. both lanes of traffic in the area are blocked so crews can work.

Crews tell our photographer on scene that the break happened around 2 a.m. Sunday morning. They anticipate it will take them approximately 4 to 5 hours to fix.

They are not sure exactly what caused the break, but believe cold weather may have played a factor. People living near the break told our photographer they do not have water.
