Water main break slows traffic off I-14 on Monday afternoon.

A water main break along Interstate 14 slowed traffic and sent water spewing into the air.

The break slowed traffic on the westbound access road in a stretch of construction between Paddy Hamilton Road and Main Street in Nolanville.

Construction workers and staff from the Nolanville Water Department were on the scene Monday evening. Time of incident was approximately 5 p.m.

The actual break was in a pipe that wasn’t clearly marked in a grassy drainage ditch type median between the access road and I-14.

Then if the Nolanville water department was attending the repair, I assume that it was after the Nolanville custody meter in which case it was Nolanville water.


They should have called 811. Call 2 to 3 days before digging. If you don't and you hit something it's your fault.

Truthfully, these guys probably did call. Not all utilities are properly located and not all respond in a timely manner when you do call.
