Dublin residents have been without water since early Tuesday morning after the water main piping the city's water into the city on Short Street burst. The 6-inch rupture of the iron pipe caused a city-wide water loss.
Dublin ISD canceled classes on all campuses due to the water loss. High School Principal Vicky Stone said classes will resume tomorrow.
City Manager Jerry Guillory said the break happened between 1-2 a.m. City staff responded to the problem by 3 a.m. stopping the water from spewing and manning phones as many citizens had already begun calling.
"A lot of the street has been eroded by the water," Guillory said.
Crews from LeHigh Heidelburg Cement Group, a specialty repair company, are on their way to fix the break.
Guillory said he is uncertain when service will be restored, but expects to have water flowing Tuesday evening.
