Water main breaks are on the rise, but far below what the city experienced last year.
Water main breaks continue to pop up across Evansville.
There have been so many lately, the city’s having to contract out the repair work.
Allen Mounts from Evansville Water and Sewer Utility says the city’s had 30 breaks in less than a week.
Mounts says, the good news is, we’ve less than half of the water main breaks we had at this time last year.
There have been 94 breaks so far this year, compared to 265 breaks, by this time last year.
