Wausau Water Works says as of Thursday they have had 17 water main breaks this winter season.

Crews are still working to repair the latest, located near the 1200 block of Holub Street. Wausau Water Works manager Deb Geiger said pinpointing the location of water main breaks in the winter is often difficult due to the frost depths. The break happened around 8 p.m. Wednesday.

She says sound equipment will be brought in to locate the source of the break.

Customers in that area were not without water.

The city of Wausau do not have run water notice and Water Works want to make it clear only residents who have been asked to run their water are to do so.
