UPDATE: Crews finished emergency repairs to the 16" valve on Tanglefoot Lane overnight.

Work is currently underway to replace another valve at the intersection of Tanglefoot Lane and 29th Street.

This valve was originally undergoing repairs when the 16" valve broke causing crews to re-direct their attention to that first.

Water is expected to be restored later this afternoon (Thursday, August 1, 2013) around 4 PM.  

The precautionary boil advisory for affected customers will remain in place until 5 PM on Friday, Aug. 2.
