Fritch water line ruptures, residents asked to limit water use

FRITCH, TX (KFDA) - Fritch residents are asked to limit their use of water to only necessary amounts after a water line ruptured today.

The City of Fritch says they have been informed that Scout Petroleum was replacing some of their lines in the area of the city's water wells when a 10-inch main line ruptured.

The city has had to shut down the wells for repairs, but it may take 10 hours to the repairs to be completed.

The city is closely monitoring pressure and water levels to make sure the water supply stays healthy.
