PICKENS COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

One west Alabama town continues to recover from water woes.

The mayor of Reform, in Pickens County, asked the superintendent to close Pickens County High School and Reform Elementary School Friday because of low water pressure.

Underground water pipes thawed after the cold earlier this week and revealed hundreds of leaks.

The mayor says they're now getting help from Alabama Rural Water to locate more leaks in the system.

He says water pressure should improve enough for the schools to re-open Monday.
