MADERA, Calif. (KFSN) — Crews in Madera working to repair a broken sewage line approximately 20 feet underground.

A local state of emergency remains with residents in Madera and Parksdale being affected by the sewage issue.

Crews have closed off Avenue 13 from Granada Drive to Road 24 as they work to construct an above-ground bypass system.

The city hoped to have the temporary solution online by Tuesday evening but say it has been delayed to Wednesday due to equipment availability.

Until then, residents are urged to avoid excessive water activities.

Residents should avoid using the dishwasher, watering plants, taking showers or flushing the toilet.

The city says tap water is safe to drink.

Residents can get updates on the situation through Facebook, or by signing up for Nixle alerts.
