Water leak leaves Ellis without water


ELLIS — Due to a large water main break, some residents and businesses in the city of Ellis will be without water for up to four hours this morning as repairs are ongoing.

The water main broke at 12th and Washington, leaving some areas near downtown without water this morning.

If it becomes necessary to shut the water tower down while repairs are made, the entire city would be affected. However, the city has not made that decision at this time, City Clerk Amy Burton said.

The Public Works Department thanks the residents for their patience in dealing with the inconvenience.
