City of Wichita public works officials on Friday said they are repairing a main break that has interrupted water service in the area of 45th Street North and Hillside including Heights High School and Stucky Middle School.
“We’re expecting to have service restored by late this afternoon,” said Joe Pajor, Deputy Director of Public Works & Utilities.
The leak, which was discovered Thursday afternoon, has left about 350 residents without water in the areas between 45th and 53rd streets. Crews begin repairing the break Thursday night but a second leak was discovered when the water was turned back on. The main break involves a tap off of a 20-inch line.
