Water service restored in Old Town after a series of lines break
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:
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.
Two people indicated in interviews they are considering mounting campaigns for the Park City Council, a signal the City Hall election could attract an intriguing slate of candidates in a year when the majority of the five seats are on the ballot.
