Crews Repair Water Main That Ruptured Off Old Alturas Road

A 12 inch water main broke Wednesday afternoon in East Redding. The break occurred beneath Old Alturas Road between Victor and Edgewood. City crews immediately started working on repairing the line. The city says residents in that surrounding area may notice some discoloration in their tap water due to minerals like iron and manganese in the system being stirred up by the break. Although there’s no danger and it’s safe to drink, people are advised to run their tap until the water comes out clear.
