Re: Water Issue Update
From: City of Wellington

A second water leak has been located and involved a main valve. It primarily affected customers on the
east side of the city. The valve issue has been resolved for the time being and water volume should be
returning to normal, although it may take several hours to do so. The main water line break, which has
been isolated, will be repaired as soon as conditions allow. We regret any inconvenience and appreciate
your patience.

Re: Water Line Break
From: City of Wellington

The City has experienced a break in one of the two main supply lines of water to the city. The
break occurred late yesterday and crews have worked to isolate the break. Water is being
supplied to the city from the second main line. Some areas of the city may be experiencing
diminished volumes of water due to rerouting of the primary supply. The City appreciates the
public’s patience as crews work to further investigate and resolve the issue as soon as possible.
Thank you.
