Water main break forces detour,
loss of service
A water main break closed East Main Street for several hours Saturday afternoon, forcing motorists to detour to avoid slick spots.
The water main break occurred at approximately 11:30 a.m. Several people called 911 to report water on the street, and freezing temperatures threatened to turn it to ice.
Water department workers were sent to the break on the corner of Main and Alta.
"Typically, this time of year we have a lot of water breaks, because of the ground moving as it freezes and thaws," said Jim Adkins, water plant operator at the Danville drinking water plant. "We see this a lot when the temperatures change."
