Nokomis Residents Without Water After Main Break
Tue, 09 Apr 2019 06:30:38 CDT
Nokomis water customers will be without water for several hours after the city's water main suffered a major break this morning.
According to Nokomis Public Information Officer Joseph Gasparich, the break occurred on the line near the corner of Hickory Street and Route 16. He said it appears to be on the main line between the water treatment plant and the water tower, causing the entire city to be without water.
Additionally, Gasparich says Route 16 is being shut down between Vine and Kinney Streets while workers are on scene.
For sanitation purposes, Gasparich says water from residents' hot water heaters may be used; however, because the pressure in the system has been lost, this water should not be consumed as potable water.
