What's up with the water-main breaks?
Several water-main breaks in the city this year prompt people to ask questions.
What causes the breaks? What are the main pipes made of and how old are they? How are the breaks fixed and when do problems indicate the need for replacement?
The Journal reported breaks along Ninth Street Jan. 14 and Feb. 4. Another break happened in the 100 block of South Wasson Lane Feb. 5.
