Mount Pleasant Crews Working to Repair Water Main Break

Crews in downtown Mount Pleasant are trying to repair a water main break.

The water main break is on the corner of East Broadway and North Franklin.

Crews are digging down to the water main to try and find out what happened. 

The Mount Pleasant water department says around 8:30 Monday morning people started noticing water coming through cracks in the road

Then the asphalt started bulging.

The water department came out and shut the water main off.

They’re working to expose the water main so they can take a closer look to figure out what caused the break.

They do not know when the road will be back open.

The water department says a boil water advisory is in effect for a few nearby businesses.

We will be sure to update you if that changes.
