Water services in eastern part of Olathe Impacted

Olathe, Kan.-Olathe Crews were dispatched to a water main break in the vicinity of 127th Street and Gallery in east Olathe shortly after 8:00 this morning. Initial reports indicate a contractor damaged the line while excavating for a project in the area.
It is estimated that over 100 customers experienced lower water pressure. In addition, 15 to 20 customers in close proximity to the break lost water service.
As of 9:35, full water pressure had been restored to all customers with the exception of those 15 to 20 nearest the damaged line. City crews replaced the section of damaged line this afternoon, and water service has been restored to all remaining customers.
The City of Olathe regrets any inconvenience customers experienced.
