Junction City Flooding, Thursday, Aug. 15
JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (WIBW) -- Heavy rains Thursday night caused flash flooding along Spring Valley Road and Old Highway 40, which damaged a portion of the Geary County Rural Water District #1 water main.
District Operator Mick McCallister said crews were on site Friday morning and repairs were scheduled to begin. "This could take a while," McCallister said. "The rushing water washed out a section of water main and our contractor will have to utilize heavy equipment to get to the creek bed where it was damaged."
McCallister said bottled water was provided to the roughly 25 patrons affected. He said they've all been notified, along with city officials.
Junction City is the district's water provider.
There will be a boil water advisory when the water comes back on until testing reveals the all clear has been achieved, McCallister said.
