Asheboro city crews restore water services following water main break

City officials said the water main break occurred early Monday morning around 5:30 a.m. near the water tower.

ASHEBORO, N.C. — Asheboro city crews restored a water main break in the downtown area.

City officials said in a statement, "Repairs to the water main have been completed. Water service is being restored to all customers. Any customer who had been without water is recommended to flush air of the waterlines by running the faucets and flushing toilets. We wish to thank our affected customers who have been understanding and patient as we worked continuously to bring service back online."

City officials said the water main break occurred early Monday morning around 5:30 a.m. near the water tower. Crews shut down several roads between South Church Street and West Academy to make repairs. 

The water main break made the roads muddy in the area and a water truck is helping to clean up the mess. City officials said South Church Street is still closed at this time. 

City officials said water services were restored to most customers but some will still be without water until Tuesday.
