Briggs says the break in the 8-inch main was reported at approximately 2:30 a.m. Friday. A crew went out to investigate between 2:50 and 3:40 a.m. A repair crew will be sent out at 7:30 a.m. and the road will be closed at that time, according to Briggs.

Water has been shut off. Approximately 50 homes are without service, says Briggs.

It could take up to 8 hours to repair the break.
