RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - Thursday saw four separate waterline breaks across Rapid City.

Crews are now on the scene of breaks on Jackson Boulevard, Sioux Avenue, Fairmont Boulevard, and Hawthorne Avenue.

They’re working to repair the breaks, and determine the cause.

About 200 residential and business customers are now without water.

The city’s communications coordinator Darrell Shoemaker said that officials cannot, at this time, provide a timeline of when the water is expected to be restored.

”It’s a process where we need to pull the pavement up, get in there and take a look at the line and see what the issue is, and then see how long the repairs will take,” Shoemaker said. “Obviously, the priority right now is getting that water service restored.”

The city urges caution when driving in these particular areas.
