Water Main Break

A water main break is disrupting some buildings on the SIU-Carbondale campus.

An official with the Rend Lake Conservancy District says the plant has been able to keep pace with demand and keep all tanks and towers filled since repairing a water main break.

General Counsel Larry Sanders says there are small leaks, which is common in all water systems. Sanders says no breaks have occurred in the system and all leaks are minor. He says no leak currently warrants doing anything more than monitoring.

Some schools and businesses are shutting down after a major water main break at the Rend Lake Conservancy District.
