UPDATE: Limited number of residents affected by water leak

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Mayor Ann Bradshaw confirmed to The Brazil Times a water leak has been discovered in an 8-inch line near the intersection of Chestnut and Warren streets just after 6 p.m.

Shortly after 8:30 p.m., Brazil City Water Superintendent Jake Raubuch told The Times the water department is digging up the area to locate the line and residents near Chestnut, Warren and Sherman streets are without water services for the time being because they have shut off valves in the area.

"The rest of the city still has their water services," Raubuch said. "The pressure levels are looking good and we are hoping we don't have to put the city under a boil order.

There is not a boil order at this time as officials continue working to repair the leak.

The Brazil Times will update this story should more information become available.

How do you figure the number of residents affected are limited.... when everyone is under a boil order ?
