MIDLAND, GA (WTVM) -  Some residents in the Beaver Run and Grand Tree subdivisions may see some cloudy or brown water this weekend, but representatives with Columbus Water Works say this should go away soon.

There was a reported water main leak on Friday in the Midland area. A total of 11 customers in that area made calls to Columbus Water Works about the water situation, although we're told man more were seeing the same brown or cloudy water.

Workers have been out there this weekend inspecting and repairing the problem. News Leader Nine was told some sediment did get into the main water lines, but this is normal when they do repair work on the pipes.

The water may appear brown, but if customers will just run their water for a while, the discoloration should go away. Columbus Water Works wants to stress, the water is not harmful to use or drink
