Broken water main presses City of Abilene water workers into service on Thanksgiving Day


    Some City of Abilene Water Utilities Department employees had to come into work on Thursday morning even though it was a holiday.

    A water main broke on South 14th Street in south Abilene at around 11 a.m. on Thursday.

    South 14th Street was closed between Amarillo Street and Vine Street while the water main was being repaired and several streets in a nearby neighborhood were flooded because of the broken water main.

    City of Abilene water crews worked to fix the broken water main and just a handful of nearby homes were without water for about an hour.
