Water main break affecting service on West River Road

ELYRIA — There were three water main breaks on West River Road on Sunday, and the city is still working to repair one of the breaks.

Dave Rothgery, head of the city water distribution department, said crews were working Monday morning to repair a break that is affecting water service for customers in the 900 block of West River Road, Filimore Avenue and Euclid Street.

The Street Department said West River Road between Filimore Avenue and Bond Street is closed while crews repair the break.

Rothgery said the break is expected to be repaired sometime this morning. He said a boil advisory will not be required. If water comes out brown, he advised running the cold water until it runs clear.

    Not a good time of year to have his happen.
    This happened about 2 weeks ago up in Winnipeg and the cars had ice frozen right-up to their axels.

    Up to their axles.
    Bet that will freeze their tire nuts!
