Louisville Water Company working to resolve water main break issues

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Louisville Water Company crews are working to repair seven water main breaks. 
 
Company spokesperson Kelley Dearing Smith says the number of area water main breaks has spiked slightly since Monday.
 
She also says to ensure crew safety, teams have been equipped with heaters on their trucks and staffed with several members so that each worker is allowed breaks. 
 
Smith says crews are dealing with icy conditions as water is freezing on the roadways during the breaks.
 
She also says customers have called regarding having no water, but says these problems are due to internal plumbing issues for customers who have frozen service lines.
