More Water Problems

By  | 

A large water main leak in southwest Colorado Springs won’t be fixed right away.

Springs Utilities says they have bigger leaks that must be fixed first. They say this particular leak in Stratmoor Hills is coming from a 50-year-old, 20-inch steel water main.

Now people in the area want answers as to why the pipe hasn’t yet been fixed.

"We have to prioritize them, the highly visible ones that can cause damage to property or streets we repair them first," said Richard Bond with Springs Utilities.

Bond says, they should be able to get to the job by Wednesday or Thursday.
