Cass County rural district No. 2’s water line fixed; customers asked to still conserve

A major water-line break Sunday night in the Cass County Rural Water District No. 2’s system has been repaired and complete water service should be back to normal by noon Monday, an official said.

Dale Miller, manager of the rural water district, said Monday that the break was repaired around 3:15 a.m. Monday and water service to all 2,500 customers should be back up and running around midday. However, he said, customers were asked to conserve water use, especially watering lawns, through noon today.

Miller said the district’s two water towers, each holding 300,000 gallons, were being filled early today. He said customers may notice air in their water lines for a day or so.

The break occurred around 7 p.m. Sunday, Miller said. He said he was unsure was caused the water-line break.

“It just split,’’ Miller said.

Many of the district’s customers had service during the outage, he said.

The rural district serves customers in parts of Cass, Otoe and Lancaster Counties and the towns of Walton and Murdock, Miller said.
