Water service restored in Old Town after a series of lines break

by Jay Hamburger THE PARK RECORD

Park City’s waterworks system suffered a series line breaks Thursday afternoon, cutting off service to sections of Old Town and lower Deer Valley from late in the afternoon until the nighttime.

City Hall said a valve that releases pressure in the system became stuck, causing the breaks. The valve is located at the intersection of Woodside Avenue and 2nd Street.

Locations where water service was cut off were:

  • Woodside Avenue between 2nd Street and 4th Street
  • Marsac Avenue from the Old Town roundabout to 402 Marsac Ave.
  • a section of Deer Valley Drive east of the Old Town roundabout
  • Sunnyside Drive
  • Deer Valley Loop
  • some addresses on the 500 block of Main Street

    City Hall indicated six water lines were broken. Officials are unsure what caused the valve to malfunction.

    A statement from the municipal government indicated water service was restored to Main Street, Woodside Avenue and Marsac Avenue by 10 p.m. The rest of the affected addresses had water restored by 3 a.m. on Friday.

    Crews were seen fixing the breaks Thursday evening, including one digging up a section of Main Street sidewalk outside the Galleria on the 500 block of the street.
