Construction crew breaches water main at Village Shops

A construction crew working on updates at the intersection of Mission Lane and Tomahawk Road breached a water main this morning sending a powerful chute of water into the air.

WaterOne spokeswoman Darci Meese said a backhoe operator hit a 12-inch main outside of the Shell gas station at the intersection. As of 8:30 a.m., workers had the main valved down and a repair crew was on its way to make the fix.
