Boil order issued after water main break in Helotes
HELOTES, Texas – A boil order has been issued after a water main break in Helotes sent water shooting up toward the sky Friday afternoon. A San Antonio Water System spokesperson said a non-SAWS contractor was doing work in the area, used a power tool and broke a 20-inch water main. A total of 600 accounts or addresses were affected by the water main break and there was a loss of pressure in the area, according to SAWS officials. That area is still experiencing little to no water pressure and nearby residents will need to boil water until the issue is resolved. Crews will be working on the water main break all night to restore pressure and repair the damage.
