Broken Waterline

City of Arkansas

City workers

Christian Roy and

Austin Haynes were

deep in a muddy

hole Wednesday late

afternoon as they

worked to repair a

broken waterline

in the 300 block

of South Summit

Street. Motorists

were being asked to

avoid the area for

the rest of the day

until repairs have

been completed. The

planned installation

of a new water

meter in that block

led to the discovery

of several adjacent

service lines that

had broken under

the street earlier

Wednesday, a

press release stated.

Water from the leak

was reported up to

several blocks away.
