UPDATE: City of East Ridge experiencing several water main breaks

Posted: Updated:
EAST RIDGE, TN (WRCB) -

Several water main breaks in East Ridge are causing problems for residents.

    The Tennessee American Water Company says as many as five breaks have been found in water mains since Friday. 

The cause is hard to pin down.  But because of the proximity of the breaks, it looks as if a fire hydrant was improperly operated by some who had permission to operate the hydrant.

    The breaks reduce water pressure across the city, sometimes to a trickle.

    Crews plan to work through the night to get the breaks under control, officials do not have a timeline for completion.
