Contractors to reimburse city for Tuesday's water main break

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The City of Longview contractors were called out to assess a rush hour water main break in Longview on  Tuesday.

Officials say the water main was struck by a contractor drilling holes for traffic lights on Bill Owens Parkway and Loop 281.

The break sent water shooting out onto the road.

Crews were able to shut off water, but not until a few windshields were reported broken by the water.

Contractors will now have to reimburse the city for repairs.
