There is a water main break on 73rd and El Rancho, The break is at the NE corner of the intersection. Residents effected are along the west side of 73rd between Wilshire and College. Customers will see low or no water pressure for the next several hours. Customers may see a lengthy delay before service returns to normal as water works crews are experiencing multiple work orders and the repair will require removing an existing storm water intake which complicates the issue.
Tentative schedule for Des Moines Water Works is sometime around 2:30 pm at which time they will need to close the Northbound Lane of 73rd and may need to reroute traffic around El Rancho.
