A water main break in the vicinity of Dollar General on Sturgis Road in Marion has left a significant part of the city's population without water, according to Marion City Administrator Mark Bryant.
"It's more widespread than we first thought," he said.
The break has led the city to issue a boil water advisory for the next 24 hours for all city water customers.
Just before 2 p.m., the break was first reported. By 2:15 p.m., Bryant said the water pressure should be back to normal fairly soon.
