Saginaw County Central Dispatch reports a water main break on Saginaw's west side.

That break is delaying the opening of the Saginaw County Government Center until noon.

The Government Center includes the county courts, department offices, and the county jail.

Saginaw County Sheriff Bill Federspiel said the county jail also lost water service due to the main break.

Inmates cannot shower but they are being provided with water bottles, Federspiel said.

Toilets will be manually flushed while the jail waits for the water service to turn back on.
