A contractor working on Cabaniss Circle discovered the water main break Monday morning. Crews had to shut the water off as they repaired the 8-inch water main break.

When the water was restored, maintenance crews discovered two more leaks on Westhaven Blvd.

Those repairs are expected to begin this morning. We don’t know how long it will take to complete the work.

We’re also working to find out if this area is under a boil water alert.
