Two water mains broke on opposite sides of the city about 9 a.m. Friday. Services will be interrupted for an estimated 6-8 hours to make repairs.

A water main near 418 Parkview Drive broke and service was shut off for customers on North Fifth Street from Gardner Park Drive north one block and all of the Parkview subdivision.

The other break was near 1624 Monroe. Water was shut off to customers on Monroe between 16th and 17th.

Once service is restored, a 48-hour boil order is suggested.
