BYRAM, MS (WLBT) -

A large water main break in Byram is now fixed, but nearby homes and businesses remain under a boil-water notice Wednesday afternoon. The notice was put in place after a water main break at the intersection of Siwell and Terry roads.

Crews worked through the night and into Wednesday morning to repair the ruptured line. Traffic was detoured around the mess, but one lane of Terry Road in each direction re-opened this morning.

Cohn Livingston, the City of Byram's Public Works Director says "we don't know what would have caused it nothing really shows why it happened it could be anything."

Livingston says the boil-water notice impacts businesses and residents in the area surrounding that intersection of Siwell and Terry roads. The water has to test clean for two days before the notice is lifted.
