ATHENS, Texas (KETK) – The City of Athens has suffered two water main breaks in the last 12 hours, according to a local Twitter account.

A break on Larkin Street Monday night forced the street to be closed from Magnolia Street to HWY 175 West. Multiple homes and businesses had service interrupted.

A second break was reported at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning on HWY 31 near Loop 7.

A contractor was reportedly working near Athens Park Homes when he struck a water main.

There is no estimated time for when the repairs will be made to either break.
