Waterline Break in Wellington *School Cancelled*


A twelve inch section of waterline burst last night within Wellington City limits. As a result the tank that provides water to the Hillcrest area was drained, and the entire Hillcrest area and surrounding areas have been without water, or with very low water pressure.

WellingtonВ City reported crews have been out actively trying to fix the break since 9:30p.m. but as of yet they have not been able to find the correct valve to shut off so that water pressure can be restored. Because of low water pressure, Wellington Elementary has cancelled school for the day. The city hopes to have the line fixed by this afternoon.
