A water main break overnight at Napoleon Road and South Main Street was being repaired by a Bowling Green utility crew this morning.
Otherwise Director of Utilities Brian O’Connell reported this morning that a power outage that affected Copper Beach apartments on South Dunbridge Road was the only other problem the utility department has faced during the storm and frigid weather.
A handful of utility department employees have been helping with snow removal and heavy equipment operation. Tuesday, while working in the area of South Main Street a call was received about a water meter failing in a business. O’Connell said the city staff shut off the water and informed the business to call a plumber to make repairs.
Director of Public Works Brian Craft said snow crews continue to work 12-hour shifts, which began last Wednesday. Parking lots were being cleared this morning. As it warms today he said crews will apply salt and work to get the ice and compacted snow off Main and Wooster streets.
Craft said the latest forecast he has seen calls for snow flurries in the next 36-hours, not the 1 to 3 inches of snow predicted earlier.
