A water-main break near the fairgrounds will cause customers to be without water for most of the day today, according to City Water Light and Power.
The break of the 16-inch main, which is one of the larger mains, happened around Peoria Rd. and Saunders.
The Southbound lane of Peoria Rd. will be closed and water customers between Sangamon Avenue and Taintor will be out of water for most of the day while crews repair the break.
CWLP officials say that it’s unclear what caused this break but things like temperature shifts and even the age of the water main can be a factor.
There is no boil order at this time.
