Rockford Scanner™: Major Water Main Break in Rockford, Busy Intersection Shut Down

Sources are reporting a major water main break.

It happened around 5:30 am this morning near Auburn and Kilburn. 

The intersection is currently closed down while they do the repairs. 

It is unknown when the intersection will re-open.  

The water main break has caused some water pressures to drop and several water flow alarms have went off, all over the city. 

No water boil has yet been issued, but as a precaution you might want to boil your water for a few days. 

The cause of the water main break is not yet known. 

Public works are working hard to repair the break.
