Water main break in Holme Circle

By Shannon McDonald

The water department was called out yesterday afternoon to fix a water main break in Holme Circle.

It happened around 3 p.m. at the intersection of Holme Avenue and Academy Road, near Thomas Holme School. An eight-inch piece of the main broke, filling the streets with water and closing a southbound lane on Academy Road. The main and sidewalk will be repaired, and traffic should not be affected.

So far, there have been no reports of flooding in nearby homes and businesses.
