Officials have blamed it on old infrastructure.

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District commissioners and employees raised over $2,300 to buy 840 cases of water.


On Friday, water was passed out to residents who desperately need it.

Some infrastructure repairs are set to start in March.

Mayor Fitzgerald Roberts also says federal, state and county assistance is being offered to help the village of Dixmoor with the water crisis.
