GNTC

Update: City of Rome Water Department crews have isolated a large water main break from Cedar Avenue east to Hemlock Street and Evergreen Street south to Hemlock Street, encompassing the Georgia Northwester Technical College campus, which has closed for the day. 

According to the Rome Water Department: 

Thought the water main break is isolated, hydrants are being flushed in the area due to water being discolored, impacting a widespread area. The break stirred up water in the main and knocked loose rust and minerals. There are no boil water orders in place.  

Reports of discolored water have come from over 2 miles away, in the area of Turner McCall Boulevard and East Eighth Street.
