Second Water Main Break in a Week

I just saw word of the second water main break downtown in the past week. It was Bowie between 5th and 6th by Whole Foods on Tuesday and now it’s not too many blocks east and north at MLK and Nueces. Apparently, water will be off from 21st to 6th on Nueces for the next 6 hours. Good thing school’s still out, a lot of people are on vacation and the work day’s over for most.

It’s the cold weather, I guess? Or wide fluctuations in temperature throughout the day? Doesn’t seem that bad.

    Our theory is that the new infrastructure put in at taxpayer expense to benefit developers of giant new buildings has a lot of capacity and that stress on the old, narrower lines results, causing these events. We’ve been seeing a lot of things up on the Drag and some over on the East Side near where there’s been new large-scale development.
