LENOIR CITY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- At least 150 folks still don't have water in downtown Lenoir City. Crews have been on site since four o'clock yesterday evening. The shut off of water supply is affecting homeowners and businesses in the area.

"Without water we couldn't run this business - there's just no way," said business onwer, Dottie Boozer.

Luckily, Boozer's water supply came back before the open of business but some other folks down the street aren't so lucky.

Ashley Munsey hasn't had running water for more than 10 hours.

"Well last night, we really didn't go anywhere to use the bathroom. I guess we're gonna have get some water to flush the toilet," said Munsey.

While Munsey was at home figuring out what to do;LCUB worked well through the night. Crews worked to get to the main water break so that everyone could have running water again.

Last we checked, LCUB said they're not sure when the water will start running again. We will keep you updated as soon as more information becomes available.
