Water Main Break Causes Icy Conditions

Posted: Updated:

Crews in Sparks have mostly cleared up the water that flooded Baring Blvd. in front of Reed High School.

Around 9:00 p.m. last night, a broken water main sent water gushing onto the road.

And with the freezing temperatures, the water has turned to ice.

Police closed the westbound section of Baring Blvd. from Sparks Blvd. to Sorenson, while crews contained the leak and sanded the roadway.

Water also made its way into the parking lot of the school, but classes were not delayed.

Roads are also open, but police still ask that drivers be mindful of the ice.

The district has not announced any cancellations or delays for Reed High School at this time.

Meanwhile, the Alf Sorensen Community Center will be closed Saturday due to the nearby water main break. The facility is regularly closed on Sundays and although it is scheduled to reopen for normal hours of operation on Monday, December 9, the public is encouraged to go to sparksrec.com for updates. Alf Sorensen Community Center is located at 1400 Baring Blvd.
