Mayor Dean Says Strict Irrigation Policy in Effect

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- A water outage affecting about 15,000 people in Southwest Nashville has left residents either completely without water or with low water pressure. Water has been made available at two distribution centers located at Hillsboro High School Crieve Hall Elementary. 

Mayor Dean took to the podium first, stating "in order for all homes and businesses to maintain water, a strict no-irrigation policy" is in effect until repairs are complete. 

Director of Metro Water Services Scott Potter says he "feels good about where we are," but also stated the location of some pumps needing repair could take some time due to the location of the pump and safety of crews. 
Although crews are expected to provide temporary fixes, permanent fixes to the affected lines will likely take time.
