The break in Bruderheim's water line has been found.
 
Crews discovered a spike in the town's water distribution system at about 11:15 p.m. on Tuesday (Feb.19). After several hours, they located a break on the main distribution line and shut off the town's water supply between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday (Feb.20) to fix it.
 
"To repair the break, we need to clamp it off and put in a new piece," said Patty Podoborozny, Bruderheim's chief administrative officer.
 
In an effort to reduce unnecessary water use, all scheduled ice times at the rink were cancelled and car washes were shutdown for the time being.
 
Water has now been restored, read the update here.
 
Strathcona County was called in to assist with the issue.
