Updated: Water main break in Ann Arbor repaired; Geddes Road still closed
A broken water main on Geddes Road in Ann Arbor has been repaired and water service restored to all customers, the city of Ann Arbor said just before 4 p.m. today.
The road was expected to remain closed to all but local traffic between Huron Parkway and Earhart Road until about 6 p.m.
Water is safe to drink straight from the tap, the city said, but anyone who has discolored water should run the cold water for a few minutes to clear the lines.
The 16-inch water main broke between Earhart Road and Huron Parkway on the city's east side this morning. Lisa Wondrash, communications unit manager, said water service was restored to all but two customers within about 15 or 20 minutes. She did not know a cause for the break.
