Repairs Underway For Water Main Break On Main Street
Montrose, CO — City utility crews responded to a water main break that occurred on Main Street between Cascade and Uncompahgre Avenues early Friday morning. According to Utilities Manager David Bries, repairs were completed by Friday afternoon thanks to the quick and professional response by his staff.
Some private property damage may have occurred within several Main Street businesses and the city is proactively working with those owners to mitigate their losses and to guide them through the claims process. The city is preparing Citizens Incident Reports which will be used to make insurance claims so financial compensation could be available to help cover costs due to clean up or water damage caused by the waterline break.
“Thanks to the quick action from city utilities crews, the damage was limited in scope. We will be assisting property owners who sustained water damage from the water main break,” said Mayor Pro Tem Barbara Bynum.
