Crews work to repair nearly two dozen main breaks around Evansville

Posted: Updated:

Evansville city officials say crews are actively working to repair nearly two dozen water main breaks around the city.

They tell us as of Wednesday morning crews were working on about 20 main breaks. Officials say they are bringing in additional contractors to help with the workload.

They say ice on the river means the water is getting much colder which is amplifying the problem.  The weather is also making it more difficult for crews to finish the work. 

Officials also say they expect more breaks the next couple of days.
