Wichita Falls Water Main Breaks

Water main breaks have been a nuisance this summer during this devastating drought, and now they seem to be getting worse.

Wichita Falls Operations Manager of Public Utilities Daniel Nix, tells Newschannel 6 nearly 90 main breaks occurred over last week, 10 alone during the weekend. Nix said this is well above average due to the combination of extreme heat and drought.

We will continue to monitor these numbers throughout the remainder of the summer.
