Water-main break in Gatewood closes road

Residents in the 37th/Elmgrove area of Gatewood say their water’s just come back on after a while without it tonight. Mark Ahlness tells WSB that city crews explained “it was a broken 8-inch water main on SW Elmgrove,” and that crews have “replaced the broken portion.” Elmgrove has been closed between 35th and 37th for the work. A WSB crew also has just stopped by the scene, and we’re told the road should reopen within a few hours, once the hole dug for the pipe fix has been re-filled.

    Maybe it was a stainless steel repair band? Not a stainless steel pipe, I maybe wrong.

      Not being a pipe expert I’ve just taken that part out. We have verified the main part of the info – it’s been fixed/replaced. Will ask SPU for followup tomorrow – TR

    We’re still missing water pressure in some of our faucets.

    clean out the aerators on the faucets. repair jobs mean grit in the pipes. flushing your pipes at the hose bibbs will help too.

Sorry, comment time is over.
