Residents of the City of Brazil are being asked by city officials to conserve water for an undisclosed amount of time.
Brazil Mayor Ann Bradshaw announced late Monday evening there was a break to an 18-inch water main feeding the treatment plant.
"The break is about a half-mile west of the well field in Putnam County," Brazil City Water Superintendent Jake Raubuch told The Brazil Times.
Despite the break, no boil order has been issued at this time.
"The water level in the tower is normal, but we have lost the reserve water at the treatment plant," Raubuch said.
