A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
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.
