Water break on S. Third Street

Published 11:31am Friday, January 31, 2014

A large piece of South Third Street in Ironton is missing after workers dug to gain access to a water break.

The repair is taking place near Mi-De-Con and Ironton Mayor Rich Blankenship said the break is one of several.

“We have people working on that water break as well as numerous other water breaks throughout the city,” Blankenship said. “We try to keep up with them as best we can and keep people informed about where the breaks are and how close we are to getting them fixed.”

Blankenship said any resident who suspects a water line has broken can call the mayor’s office at 532-3833.
