Water Main Rupture Closes Busy Street in Santa Rita Neighborhood


SAN ANGELO – A water main break in the Santa Rita neighborhood has closed a section of W. Ave. N for several hours according to the San Angelo Police Department.  

The SAPD issued a Nixle alert at 8:49 p.m. that said, "Avoid S. Fillmore to S. Jackson on W. Ave. N for the next several hours due to a water main break."

City crews routinely work on water main breaks because of aging pipelines and other infrastructure.  Also, fluctuations in water pressure can affect water lines.
