Monitoring Leak at S. Davis and Ward

Elkins Water System employees are monitoring a leak on a 4-inch line near the intersection of South Davis Avenue and Ward Avenue. At this time, the plan is to allow the leak to flow and delay repairs for the following reasons:

  • The leak is flowing directly into a catch basin and is not causing ice to form on the roadway or flooding anyone’s basement or other property.
  • Fixing this leak would require closing the valve to this line.
  • Given current and projected temperatures, securing the valve could lead to frozen meters for hundreds of customers.

We will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as warranted.
