Update on Repairs of Water Leaks near Water Treatment Center

Contact: City Communications |

The City of Wichita continues repairs on the leaks in a 42” finished water pipe located between the Hess pump station at 1601 Museum Blvd and the current water treatment facility. Treatment and delivery of water is normal and customers should continue to not experience any service impacts from the leaks at this time.

Construction of the bypass for the pipe repair is complete. Repair work on the second leak is progressing and completion of that repair is expected on Monday, April 4. Repair work on the third leak will begin after a gas line is relocated and is expected to move forward on Wednesday, April 6.

Safe water pressure is being maintained as crews continue to make repairs. The pipe with the leak is one of three that supplies treated water to the Hess Pump Station.

Public Works and Utilities became aware of a leak the afternoon of March 23 at roughly 1 p.m. and are working around the clock to monitor the leak and water pressure.
