LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Lots of folks remain without water this afternoon as crews with the La Follette Utilities Board work to make repairs to two broken water lines in the area of the La Follette Post Office and La Follette Middle School.

This second water line break is on Foot Hills Drive beside La Follette Middle School.

LUB’s Water Department has two cases of trouble; one in front of the post office and the other beside the post office. “It is going to be a long night,” said one of the LUB crew members.

Traffic on the four lane faces a slow down near the post office.

The problem started this morning and forced LMS and La Follette Elementary School to close at noon. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/27/2022-6PM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)
