Downtown water main break fixed early Monday

Emporia's Underground Utilities crews had to deal with downtown's second water main break in a week overnight.


Crews were alerted to the water main issues in the 100 block of East Sixth, or between Mechanic and Merchant, late Sunday night. Crews were able to find the leak in the three-inch line and restore service by 7 am.

Underground Utilities Supervisor Gary Sadowski says a handful of customers were affected.

The repairs follow the water main break in the 10 block of West 10th that developed Jan. 6. It took until Jan. 8 for the source of the leak to be discovered and repaired.
