City of Breckenridge Public Works employees finished repairing a broken water main at about 2:30 a.m. today, restoring water to city residents, according to an email from City Secretary Jessica Sutter.

A waterline at the intersection of West Fourth Street and North Payne Street was broken by a contractor on Wednesday, April 6, and both of Breckenridge’s water towers were drained before a cut-off valve was located and the pipe repaired.

“While repairs are complete, (Public Works) crews will be on site today to finish restoring the site,” a statement from the City said. “However, as required by (the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality), the (Boil Water Notice) is still in effect until crews get a sample tested and cleared by TCEQ. We are doing that this morning. It usually takes at least 24 hours to get results back from TCEQ and get cleared to rescind the BWN. Again, we appreciate your patience and give kudos and thanks to our PW crew that stayed on the job until repairs were completed.”
