Evansville handles nearly 200 main breaks so far in 2014

Posted: Updated:

Water main breaks continue to cause problems around Evansville and icy conditions make it even tougher for repair crews.

So far this year, the Water and Sewer Department has handled 190 breaks and issued 73 boil advisories.

Last year, there were 315 water main breaks and 190 boil advisories total.

Crews expect breaks to continue until we see a steady warm-up in the spring. 

According to dispatchers and the Water Department's website, no new breaks have popped up overnight.

There are currently 9 boil advisories in effect. You can find the list of boil advisories here.
