Crews working to find source of water main leak on Cass Ave. after collapse

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Crews are working a section of Cass Avenue.

Water department officials say the collapse started several weeks ago caused by issues with a 96″ storm drain. They say the collapse area has increased significantly over the past two weeks and likely caused a leak in a water main.

We’re told they have located the area where the water main leak might be and once they determine an exact location, crews will make repairs.

Neighbors tell us this has been an issue for them for at least a month. They has caused them to go different directions and drive on others yards to get to where they need to go.

And while they have noticed the water and sewer crews, they want to see more progress.

“They came out the first time they looked at it and put the barriers up," says Cass Avenue resident, Harriet Brooks. "Second time the came out they went down the street and looked at the sewer. The third time they came out they marked it. and they came out this morning just looked at it. You know your yard down there is sinking that’s about the fourth or fifth time her yard sunk in you know it’s really ridiculous.”

Officials say, at this point, there’s no impact on water or sewer service for customers.
