Update: Water services were restored Friday afternoon to areas along 61st Street and Stewart Road after crews completed repairs to a water line break.
Original: An emergency water line break caused crews to turn off water along 61st Street between Stewart Road and Lee and Joe Jamail Park on Thursday afternoon.
Contractors working on the 24" water line project struck a 12" water line on Thursday afternoon. At around 2:45 p.m., crews were en route to fix a water line break, and repairs are ongoing.
The water has to be turned off to repair the line, which is affecting areas along 61st Street between Lee and Joe Jamail Park and Stewart Road. Water is also off along Stewart Road between 61st Street and Grover Avenue.
We are working to fix the line and restore service as soon as possible. While crews are working expeditiously, repairs could continue overnight to fix the line and restore water. We apologize for this inconvenience to businesses in this area. Please know that we are working quickly to restore the service and will provide an update once it is working again.
