Service Restored for DUD Customers Affected by Broken Water Line

Water will soon start flowing again for customers of the DeKalb Utility District who have been without water for the last day or two.

DUD officials say work was completed late Friday night to a main line break which was discovered Thursday on Highway 70 at the top of Snow Hill across from DeKalb Market.

Service should be restored Saturday morning for customers in the area. It may also take a little while for water pressure to build back for some customers.

Officials say because the line was buried so deep in the ground, it was difficult to reach. Digging operations began shortly after the break was discovered Thursday. DUD workers and other local contractors worked late in the night Thursday and early Friday morning. More digging equipment and manpower were brought in Friday to join in the effort to locate the line.
