Tyson plant in Shelbyville halts 2nd shift due to water issues

The Tyson Food plant in Shelbyville suspended its second shift Thursday.

A spokesperson for the company said production was halted due to water quality issues supplied by the Shelbyville Water System.

News 2 spoke with David Crowell, general manager of the Shelbyville Water System, who said storms earlier this week caused a disruption in a water pipe.

A lightning strike is believed to have caused iron particles to break loose.

Officials said the water is safe to drink, cook and bathe in.

All issues should be complete in upcoming days.
