Butterfield Water Main Break Fixed 20 Feb 14

Public works crews in the City of Butterfield have reportedly isolated the water main break that has left much of the town without water Tuesday and part of Wednesday. Crews were able to track down the break at around 11:30pm Tuesday, and water service for the town has been restored at this time. A similar water main break last week took about eight hours to repair due to the depth of the frost in the ground. Many communities around the area are asking residents to “trickle” their water to avoid frozen pipes and broken water mains.
