City crews are working today to clear mud and debris from the southeast corner of the Rush neighborhood.

The City has received numerous calls from residents of the area regarding the mud and debris.

Crews are cleaning up as much of it as possible now.

Once the streets dry, street sweepers will go into the roads and sweep up the remaining debris.

The mud and debris were left behind when water flowed from two broken water pipes in the area. The first break occurred around midnight last night near 16th and Salem.

The second occurred about 6:30 this morning at 11th and Toledo.

It's not known what caused the pipes to break.

The line at 16th and Salem has already been repaired, and crews are working to repair the second line.
