YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Crews were sent out to fix another water main break on Southern Boulevard, near Lucy Street.
WYTV alerted Youngstown’s Street Department Tuesday that dips had appeared in the pavement following a break on Saturday. Wednesday, the cast iron line snapped just 10 feet away from the original break.
Youngstown Water Department Supervisor Joe Dunlap said with lines over 50 years old, sometimes moving the ground during a repair will cause another break nearby.
A boil water alert for approximately 20 nearby residents remains in effect.
