Water main break takes hours to repair

Friday, March 26, 2004

A break in a four-inch water line in front of Hardee's and French Funeral Home on National Avenue was reported late Friday morning.

Jennfer Eder, a Brazil Water Works Repair employee, said "many, many people" in Brazil were without water Friday afternoon. It is estimated the break occurred around 10 a.m.

A repair that was first estimated to take a short time with water turned off a few minutes, became an hours-long job.

Workers estimated water would be turned back on at 6 p.m. Friday.
