Ashland Borough Repairs Water Main Break

Borough workers have been working all morning on repairing a water main break in Ashland.

Borough Water Superintendent, Sam Snyder, said early Tuesday morning, the borough experienced a loss in water pressure. Crews searched overnight and found the leak in the 1600 Block of Centre Street around 5:30am.

Around noon Tuesday, the line had been replaced, when a second leak was found. The second leak was in the process of being repaired.

Snyder said the repairs were expected to be completed Tuesday afternoon.

The borough has warned residents that water may be discolored.  If a water boil advisory is required, residents will be notified.
