STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) - The City of Staunton took to Facebook to announce that Greenville Avenue is closed due to a major waterline break at the railroad overpass and watering can.

The street is closed in both directions. The city says repairs and impact to service are expected to take several hours.

City officials add that the waterline break on Greenville Avenue has caused water pressure fluctuations at other locations in the city.  As a result of those fluctuations, you may see a discoloration of the water from the tap.  While the discolored water may be unpleasant to drink, it is safe. 

Once pressure is fully restored, it is recommended that domestic waterlines be flushed by running cold water indoors or from an outdoor spigot until the water runs clear.  This will avoid introduction of sediment into hot water heaters and other appliances.
