Water main break isolated

Marshalltown Water Works personnel responded to reports of a water main break on May Street near its intersection with South 3rd Avenue around 5 a.m. Tuesday. The break was isolated soon after, and Water Works General Manager Steve Sincox said there may be one customer without water. “Prior to isolating the leak, we did have some low pressure in a few areas,” Sincox added. The cause of the break is still being investigated. Water from the break flowed downhill toward the back of the South Center Street Hy Vee, where it pooled along the north side of the building.
