16” Water Line Break Closes Fairview, North of Prince


(March 17, 1600 hours) A break in a 16” mortar-lined cylinder pipe has resulted in the closure of Fairview Ave. north of Prince Rd.

Fairview is closed between Thurber and Simmons Roads. Traffic can use Thurber and Simmons as alternate routes to Oracle Rd.

Water loss was held to a minimum and no water made it to nearby drainage channels or washes. However, flushing is occurring to clear the now-isolated water line.

A contractor is already onsite. Repairs are expected to be completed by Thursday, March 23.

Motorists are asked to drive with caution for the safety of the workers and neighborhood residents. Signs are being placed to direct neighborhood traffic. Drinking water service is not affected.
