Hartselle City Schools closed Tuesday due to water problems

HARTSELLE, AL (WAFF) - The Hartselle City School system will not have school Tuesday due to the lack of water.

Several other schools and businesses in the area are closed or delayed because of the water issue.

Monday morning, Decatur utilities announced problems with their Water Treatment facility.  Decatur Utilities said it would be at least 24 hours before working at 100% again.

Decatur Utilities is requesting that all customers limit water usage to emergency purposes only. They say the water is still safe to drink and this is an operational issue that does not affect the quality of the water.
