PORTLAND, Ore. — A water main break in Northeast Portland, Ore. had residents calling to complain about dirty tap water, according to The Oregonian.
Tim Hall, spokesman for the Portland Water Bureau, said crews responded to the break of an 8-inch diameter pipe, noted the article.
Crews shut off the water as they worked to repair the pipe, which was expected to take six to eight hours.
Around 100 to 200 residents and businesses near the break may have been shut off from water during repairs and experience lower water pressure, stated the article.
Hall recommended that if the water was dirty, residents should let it run for five minutes.
“We do not recommend people drinking water with dirt in it,” Hall said.
