City of Seward Logo

A punctured water main near the intersection of Phoenix Road and the Seward Highway has cut off water to residents and businesses throughout much of the city. Officials are urging the public not to drink city water until repairs are completed. Public Works crews are on the scene and are asking residents to avoid the area until the incident can be contained.

“We’ve got a big flood going on down here,” said Seward Public Works Director Doug Schoessler. “A drilling company hit the water line, and we’re just trying to get everything shut down and isolated so we can get water back to everybody.”

No word yet as to an estimated time for service restoration, but crews are working to make emergency repairs.
