Water main breaks
Pictured above are city workers repairing a water main break at the corner of 12th and Main St. in Washington on Thursday, Jan. 16. Washington Maintenance and Construction Superintendent J.J. Bell said the city found out about the water main break yesterday morning. Three residences were without water until the water main was repaired this morning. The repairs took three and a half hours and traffic on Main St. was shut down for a little while. Traffic on 12th St. was down to one lane. Everything is open and working again, Bell said.
