FAIRFIELD, AL (WBRC) -

According to officials with the Birmingham Water Works Board, around 75% of customers in Fairfield are currently either without water service or are experiencing very low water pressure.

We understand a major main break is the cause for the disruption in service. It is expected to take up to 7 hours to fix the problem, as of around 9 p.m. Tuesday.

No word on what precisely caused the main break, but the Fairfield area has experienced some flooding issues Tuesday evening as rain showers moved through the area.
